## Solving systems of linear equations

The new SAT places a heavy emphasis on the “Heart of Algebra,” which is a bizarre and tortured euphemism for, mostly, working with linear equations. One of the kinds of questions you know you’re going to see, probably more than once, on your SAT is solving systems of linear equations. For example: Which ordered pair satisfies (more…)

## A quickie: Translating words into math

This kind of thing is going to be featured much more heavily on the new SAT than it is on the current one, so I figured I’d put a quick quiz together. Struggling with any of these? Discuss them in the comments! For each of the items below, choose the mathematical statement that is equivalent to (more…)
