Lesson Summary:

In this lesson, we learn how to solve a linear equation with infinitely many solutions. By simplifying the equation and noticing that the left side equals the right side, we find that the variable Q does not equal one specific number, but rather any value of Q makes the equation true. This means that the equation has infinitely many solutions, which is a unique concept compared to the usual method of solving equations for one specific solution.

Lesson Description:

Solving a linear equations with infinite many solutions

I show how to solve math problems online during live instruction in class. This is my way of providing free tutoring for the students in my class and for students anywhere in the world. Every video is a short clip that shows exactly how to solve math problems step by step. The problems are done in real time and in front of a regular classroom. These videos are intended to help you learn how to solve math problems, review how to solve a math problems, study for a test, or finish your homework. I post all of my videos on YouTube, but if you are looking for other ways to interact with me and my videos you can follow me on the following pages through My Blog, Twitter, or Facebook.

Questions answered by this video:
  • How do I solve an equation where the left side of the equation is exactly the same as the right side of the equation?
  • How do I solve an equation that has parentheses?
  • How do I solve 8q+12=4(3+2q)?
