Elementary Algebra, Third Edition focuses on the basic principles, operations, and approaches involved in elementary algebra.

The book first ponders on the basics, linear equations and inequalities, and graphing and linear systems. Discussions focus on the elimination method, solving linear systems by graphing, word problems, addition property of equality, solving linear equations, linear inequalities, addition and subtraction of real numbers, and properties of real numbers. The text then takes a look at exponents and polynomials, factoring, and rational expressions. Topics include reducing rational expressions to lowest terms, addition and subtraction of rational expressions, factoring integers, quadratic equations, greatest common factor and factoring by grouping, multiplication with exponents, and addition and subtraction of polynomials. The manuscript examines more quadratic equations and roots and radicals, including complex solutions to quadratic equations, completing the square, graphing parabolas, properties of radicals, and multiplication and division of radicals.

The publication is a dependable reference for students and researchers interested in elementary algebra.
