20.4 Using algebra tiles to solve polynomials
Using algebra tiles to solve polynomials
Algebra tiles can be used to represent polynomials. We can also use those tiles to solve polynomials. In this lesson, we will try to solve some polynomials using algebra tiles.
Basic concepts:
 Model and solve onestep linear equations: $ax = b$, $\frac{x}{a} = b$
 Solving twostep linear equations using addition and subtraction: $ax + b = c$
 Solving twostep linear equations using multiplication and division: $\frac{x}{a} + b = c$
 Solving twostep linear equations using distributive property: $\;a\left( {x + b} \right) = c$
