NOTE: This is the first 2 hours of Lesson. Rent Part 2B for remaining hour.
This lesson consists of providing you with a Self-Tutorial on how to solve typical linear word problems (story problems or applied problems). The tutor shows you how to solve for a specific variable in formulas. He also discusses how to covert a repeating decimal into a fraction (which was skipped in Basic Math: Lesson 6 -"Fractions") and will teach you how to convert units of measurement.
Examples of word problems done include:
Finding a number based on certain criteria. Word problems involving some geometry (triangle, rectangle, circle). Age problems. Mixture problems. Money problems (story of my life!). Rate-Time-Distance problems. Percent Equations/problems. Ratio and Proportion (concepts and solving problems, including similar triangles). Problems dealing with Unit Price.
