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).
Money problems (story of my life!).
Ratio and Proportion (concepts and solving problems, including similar triangles).
Problems dealing with Unit Price.
