Schedule an appointment with a peer tutor via Tutor Match

Q: What's the difference between Live Help and Tutor Match?

Live Help = Brainfuse professional tutors who offer general help online. No appointment is necessary.

Tutor Match = Rasmussen peer tutors who are students too, so they are familiar with courses and assignments. Rasmussen tutors are available online, over the phone, and on campus (when available). You must schedule an appointment in advance.

### Order of Operations

An "operation" is a mathematical action such as addition, subtraction, multiplication, etc.  When solving mathematical expressions, it is important to follow the order of operations--steps that should be followed to arrive at a correct answer.

Mathematical equations should be solved from left to right. Then solve in the following order using PEMDAS:

P  Solve what appears in parentheses first

E  Compute the exponents (roots) next

M  Multiply from left to right

D  Divide from left to right

A  Add from left to right

S  Subtract from left to right

### Distributive Property

Watch the video below to gain a better understanding of the distributive property. ### Linear Equations

Linear equations have one or two variables. Linear equations can take on three forms:

• Standard form: Ax + By = C
• Slope-Intercept Form: y = mx + b
• Point-Slope Form: y - y1 = m(x-x1)
