• This video is so confusing that I feel brain dead like Kaminari...somone explain this more simple to me so I don't fry my brain with electric from my headphones because they are dead...
• Thanks for advice. And at least someone understood my joke...I'm just trying to lighten up the mood with comedy from My Hero Academia..And I was trying to be funny, I like making jokes like that.
• why don't the videos match what the questions are talking about in the actual practice lesson?
• This video uses the actual practice lesson. The format looks different because it is the old format that KA had until a couple of years ago. But the problems do come from the exercise set.
• this isnt helping at all
• Well, it makes sense. Variables also have several unknowns. But it's one of each. 2V + V
V in this case is equal to 1. So the solution is 3V.
And remember the video before. The variable means 1V. V can be anything.
• Can someone explain this, please?

• What is a linear expression?\

• "It is made up of two expressions set equal to each other. A linear equation is special because: It has one or two variables. No variable in a linear equation is raised to a power greater than 1 or used as the denominator of a fraction."
