To solve simple algebraic expressions you have to use different properties. Distributive property is one among them. To apply distributive property in a algebraic expression multiply each term inside the parenthesis by the outside term. In this way you are distributing the outside term to all the inside terms and removing the parenthesis. Hence it is called distributive property. After multiplying add the like terms to simplify it further. Care should be taken to ensure the proper sign change...

In this video the instructor shows how to factor a general quadratic polynomial. Here the first step is to identify the coefficient of the squared term. Write the reciprocal of the numerical coefficient of the squared term out side and write two separate parenthesis which are going to contain the binomials which are the factors of the original equation. The first term of both the binomials is the first term numerical coefficient times the unknown variable. Now multiply the first term numerica...

In this video the instructor shows how to multiply and write rational expressions in lowest terms. The fist thing you need to do is cancel out the common factors in the numerator and the denominator. You can cancel a term in the top with a term in the bottom even if they are diagonal as long as one is in numerator and the other is in the denominator. After cancellation if you have a term in numerator and an identical term in the denominator but with opposite signs, then pull out the negative ...

In this tutorial the instructor shows how to identify similar terms in a polynomial equation. He states that in similar terms the variables and their exponents are exactly the same but they may differ in the co-efficient. He shows how to identify similar terms by using some examples. He shows that a change is even the co-efficient makes them dissimilar terms. Similar terms can be further added as the variable of both the terms is same.

Putting a rational expression in its lowest terms (also called "reduction") is a bit tricky, but it becomes very easy once you know a few tricks.

A factoring problem that has to be solved by grouping is easy to identify, because you can always identify if there are any similar terms in a polynomial. Now, if you find any variable common in any terms pull them out as the common leaving the rest of the terms. After pulling out the common terms you can group the rest of the polynomial. Be careful while pulling out signs. Pulling out a positive number does not effect the signs of terms in the polynomial, where as pulling out a negative numb...

In this video, the instructor shows how to factor trinomials. An equation is a trinomial if it has three terms. If you factor a trinomial, you are left with two binomials which are the factors of the original trinomial. Multiplying them would result in the original trinomial. Now factor the last numerical term such that the sum or difference of those factors gives you the numerical coefficient of the middle term. Now split the middle term according to the factors obtained in the previous term...

Multiplying polynomials is a distributive property. If you are given with two binomials and asked to multiply them, you need to apply the distributive property and multiply the terms of binomial with the terms of second binomial. To do this first take a term of first binomial and multiply it with the second complete binomial. Now take the second term of first binomial and multiply it with the second binomial adding or subtracting it from the previous result depending on the sign between the f...

In this video the instructor shows who to simplify radicals. If you have a term inside a square root the first thing you need to do is try to factorize it. First factorize the numerical term. Write down the numerical terms as a product of any perfect squares. Now split the original radical expression in the form of individual terms of different variables. Now you can pull out the perfect square numerical factors out of the radical. Similarly for the variable terms write the variables as power...

In this video the instructor shows how to solve a quadratic equation. If you have a quadratic equation with complex fractional terms and you find that a particular term is repeating then equate that term to a new variable and replace the variable in the given equation. Now try to get the equation a*x*x + b*x + c = 0, and solve for the roots of the equation which gives the values of the intermediate variable. But this variable was replaced instead of another term. So equate that term to the va...

In order to solve a quadratic equation by completing the square, take a quadratic equation and make sure that the coefficient of the first squared term in one. If it is not factor it by pulling the term out to get it to one. Now just write down the first two terms in side a bracket and after it add the third term. Now take the coefficient of the x term and take one half of it and square it and put that number back into the bracket. Now as you added a new number, to cancel it out subtract it f...

Through there is no general method to solve them you can follow a set of guidelines. First thing you have to do is make sure that only x terms remain on the left hand side of the equation. If there are any other numerical terms add the negative of that term to both the sides of the equation to eliminate it on the left hand side. ...

In this video the instructor shows how to factor a trinomial with negative leading coefficient. Most of the students are confused when they have to factor a trinomial with a negative leading coefficient. But there are many ways to solve these kind of problems as shown in this video. One way you can do is that take out the greatest common factor (GCF) of -1 from the equation. So pulling the -1 gives you the original trinomial with all the signs of the terms changed. Now go on and factor the ne...

This video shows the method to factor a trinomial with a negative sign in the front. The first step is to make the first term positive. This is done by taking the negative sign out. Then we see the middle term of the trinomial. The coefficient of the middle term is a positive one in the example shown. We have to group the coefficient of the first and third term in a way so that the difference is positive one. The appropriate combination is chosen so that this becomes true. In this way the tri...
