Solving for X is pretty much an SAT establishment. If you cannot quickly and without error find X, your chances at a killer SAT score are totally not awesome. Just imagine getting the following fairly simple question:
If you do not know that x = 3, then you are in the right place. If you are thinking to yourself, “Goodness, Craig, why are you wasting my time with that!”, good for you! Remember, these introductory SAT posts are ‘SAT Math Basics‘. We are rocking through the basics before we hit up some advanced math. The purpose of these posts is not to be an exhaustive SAT manual. That would be counter-productive. This guide is here to be an evergreen lesson for all future SAT students.
And that works!
Solving for X is not the only tricky beast I’m breaking down in this video. I also show you how the very simple process of solving for x can be used to do more complicated problems involved inequalities. Imagine have the following question:
After you watch the video, you’ll learn that the process for rocking this question in the same process (more or less) that you used to totally dominate the previous question. This is all true because the SAT is not going to kill you, it’s not going to stress you out, and it’s not going to dominate your ability to go to an awesome school.
What are you waiting for? Go solve for x and rock your inequalities:
The Final Word
SAT Math is not hard. But it does ask a lot of you. If you take these video lessons together, apply a really smart strategy, and ignore the traditional tricks and misdirection prevalent on the SAT, you will do just fine. If you work through these videos and you have questions, ask those questions in the comments. If these videos are helpful, let me know. Deep down, the lesson I want to instill here is that you KNOW all that you are supposed to know for the SAT, but you may have either forgotten how to implement or forgotten how to use. Either way, together we will rock through your misunderstandings, clear up any issue, and really, thoroughly, and completely make the SAT a little inside joke.
