Special Case Equations Test
About Solving Special Case Equations:

Once we have mastered solving a linear equation in one variable, we begin to consider the types of equations that we will encounter. We will see conditional equations, identities, and contradictions. Our two special case scenarios are identities and contradictions.

Test Objectives:

•Demonstrate the ability to solve a conditional equation

•Demonstrate an understanding of a contradiction

•Demonstrate an understanding of an identity
