# Rock The SAT Math Test: Heart of Algebra

## Heart of Algebra

The point of the Heart of Algebra section is to see if you can demonstrate both procedural skill and a thorough understanding of linear equations, linear functions, and linear equalities. This is accomplished by asking you to solve straightforward questions or challenging questions. Remember that a lot of these concepts can and will be asked in many different ways. So, itβs a good idea to practice with as many questions as you can to get an idea of how to solve the same concepts in different contexts. For example, the standard equation of a line concept (y=mx + b) can be tested in so many different ways: to find x or y intercepts; to find slope of a line; to compare the slopes of two or more lines; to manipulate and understand the effects of m on x, the point of intersection between two lines, and so on. Also, make sure to know the distance of a line formula, the midpoint formula, and the point of intersection formula.

Here, we have outlined these concepts:

It is important to note that many Heart of Algebra questions will ask to solve for the following:

- Define one or more variables
- Determine the algebraic relationship between the variables
- Solve for the required variable
- Interpret the results to answer what the question is specifically asking

There will be a total of 19 questions for this category β 11 for the Calculator portion and 8 for the No-Calculator portion.
