When you first get started in Algebra, one of the first things you learn to do is solve equations. This video solves equations that require two steps. It shows you how to know which step to do first and how to check to see if your answer is correct.

Equations in Algebra get to be much longer and 'more complicated' than these. This is where you start so that you will have the foundation to move ahead. If you are absent from school when your teacher explains this process, this video will help you 'catch up' quickly. Whew! That's a good feeling. Being lost and getting behind is no fun!

Welcome! I'm so glad you are here! Math help is here for you when you need it.
