We always encounter situations that can be expressed in linear equations. Watch this lesson and learn how to solve linear equations word problems.

Basic Concepts: Solving linear equations using multiplication and division, Solving two-step linear equations: $ax + b = c$, ${x \over a} + b = c$, Solving linear equations using distributive property: $a(x + b) = c$, Solving linear equations with variables on both sides

Related Concepts: Money related questions in linear equations, Unknown number related questions in linear equations, Distance and time related questions in linear equations, Rectangular shape related questions in linear equations

- 1.Find the equation of a line parallel to 3x + 5y = 9 with the same y-int as 4x -5y = 12
- 2.Find the equation of a line perpendicular to 3x + 4y = 12 with the same x-int as 2x - 6y = 0
- 3.Lines A & B are perpendicular and have the same x-int. The equation of line A is x + 2y - 4 = 0. Determine the y-int of line B.
