The amount of tax and tip on a restaurant bill is a common example used in percent problems. Here, learners only know the total amount paid, and they need to figure the itemized amounts. Solutions using a ratio table, using knowledge of percents and division, or creating an algebraic expression are all explored.

Here is a unique math app that takes the idea of solving equations and presents it through a puzzle-like game. The puzzle you are always trying to solve is getting the “box” alone on one side of the game board. This is accomplished by making the same types of manipulations that one does when solving equations.

How Do You Turn a More Complicated Expression into Words?
Given an algebraic expression, write a word problem. Usually it's the other way around where you have a word problem and need to write an algebraic expression. But, this is a good skill to have because it would mean that one has a good understanding of the relationship between words and algebraic expressions.

How Do You Multiply Quotients of Monomials by Canceling Factors?
Multiply algebraic fractions. But first cancel or reduce the numerators and denominators, then do the multiplying. Cancel out the common factors in these monomials. It is always a good idea to reduce as much as possible before multiplying. It is much simpler to do it before than having to reduce numbers after they have been multiplied.

How Do You Solve a Rational Equation With Binomials in the Denominator?
You've got some algebraic fractions in an equation and their denominators are all different. Well, first you need to strategize. Then find the excluded values that make your denominator equal zero because we know the denominator cannot ever be zero.
