Chapter 5 Lesson 5 – Formulas and Literal Equations

Great you made it to the last lesson in the equations chapter.  You have already learned so much at this point and are so much better prepared to pass the GED but we have more to learn.  As in any subject the material usally gets a little harder as you go along and math is no different.  This last lesson will be on solving formula and literal equations.  For most students this topic is hard at first but as you practice these type of equations will become easy to solve.

Things to focus on in this lesson:

• the steps to solve one, two and mulit-step equations
• the approach we take to solve for a variable when an equation has mulitiple variables
• why we need to solve formula and literal equations

Great Job!  you finished lesson 5 and the entire chapter on equations.  Let’s review some of the skills you should have this far into the course:


* being able to work with fractions and positive and negative numbers

* understanding the order of operations and variable expressions

* knowing how to solve equations

The next chapter we will start will be about lines, slope and the equations of lines- key topics in algebra

Hello John, I am writing to thank you. During the Summer I took and passed all of my GED courses with the exception of the Math test. I found your free math course online and listened and watched all of the videos, trying to educate myself utilizing the tools and tips that you provided. I have to admit, it was very overwhelming and at times I felt as though I was being taught in a foreign language. I scheduled my re-test earlier this week and I passed. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. It took me 22 years to feel confident enough to achieve this goal and I am forever grateful to you for offering this information online. You are heaven sent! Now I can apply for better paying jobs and attend college. Thank you, thank you, thank you for helping others change their lives for the better!!” Sincerely, Alicia
