M1 Assignment 2: Simplifying Expressions and Solving Equations

By Saturday, January 9, 2016, complete the following assignment and post your response in this Discussion Area. Review and critique the work of at least two other students by the end of the module, and respond to comments.

Simplifying expressions and solving equations are at the heart of algebra. In order to effectively solve an equation, you need to be able to see how the expressions involved can be simplified. Equations can be thought of as mathematical models that represent some kind of process or relationship depending upon the area of application. To get to the answers you seek, you must solve the equation. In this assignment, we will practice, as a class, the processes you must go through to simplify expressions and solve equations.
