This episode of GED Connection focuses on Algebra. Algebra is a symbol ic language used to describe relationships among numbers. On the GED t est you'll be expected to know how to use algebra to simplify equation s, and how to solve for variables. You'll also need to know how to wor k with signed (positive and negative) numbers. Some of the important t erms discussed in this program are: equation, balance, unknowns, varia bles, and inverse operations. Other important concepts such as isolati ng the variable, simplifying the equation, commutative properties, dis tributive properties, and positive and negative numbers are also discu ssed.
