TIPS FOR SEMESTER I EXAM
Double Block Algebra
REMEMBER: You can pass this exam. Take your time and use your brains. There are a lot
of rules to remember, but if you remember the following, you’ll do fine.
The Properties of Algebra
Order of Operations - PEMDASDB
Simplify expressions inside the Parenthesis
Evaluate all Exponents
Do all Multiplication & Division left to right
Do all Addition & Subtraction left to right
Simplify the Division Bar
Additive [a + 0 = a]
Associative [x+(y+z) = (x+y)+z]
Commutative [x + y = y + x]
Distributive [3(x + y) = 3x + 3y]
Multiplicative [a • 1 = a]
Reflexive [x = x]
Substitution [replace/simplify]
Symmetric [x = y SO y = x]
Transitive [3 “=” signs]
Zero [a • 0 = 0]
+/–‘ing Fractions
1. Find the Common Denominator
2. Multiply numerators by # to get
common denominator
4. Keep Common Denominator
*/÷‘ing Fractions
1. Reduce any numerator with any
denominator
2. Multiply straight across
3. Reduce if possible
Solving Equations & Inequalities
1. Get rid of any parenthesis by distributing
2. Get rid of any division bars by multiplying both sides by denominator
3. “Pack the boxes” – Before moving, combine all like terms on each side of “=” sign
4. Get variables together by moving them all to one side by adding/subtracting
5. Get numbers together by moving them all to the other side by adding/subtracting
6. Get the variable all alone by multiplying/dividing by the coefficient of “x”
Linear Equations & Inequalities
Slope:
a. Count
b. m 
Point-Slope: (y – y1) = m(x – x1)
