Lines 9: Linear Word Problems

In this video, we are going to learn how to solve linear word problems
  • We will list the main different types of linear word problems: constant increase/decrease, finding a rate of change, and modeling using direct variation
  • We go through an example of constant increase and explain which is the slope and which is the y-intecept
  • We find the rate of change of a real life example
  • We show how direct variation is reated to d=rt and go through an example
