C:/CLASES_COLEGIO/2007/NOTAS/0102/ 01/30/07 Math 1332 - College Mathematics Chapter 2-3 Notes Linear Equations Equation – is a statement that two mathematical expressions are equal. Equations always have an equals sign. Ex: x + 15 = 9x – 1, x 2 –2x + 1 = 2x, xy + x 2 = y 3 + x, 1 + 5 = 6 Note Æ equations can be linear or non-linear Solving equations Solve an equation – find all values for the variable that make the equation a true statement. Solutions – are the values you find that make the equation a true statement. Solution set – the set of all solutions. Satisfies – The found value ( x ) “satisfies” the equation. Equivalent – two equations are equivalent if they have the same solution set. Ex: x + 2 = 5 and x = 3 Contradiction – an equation that has no solutions, which then has an empty solution set. Ex: x + 2 = x Identity – an equation that has every value for the variable be a solution.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
