Using Singapore Bars to Solve Algebraic Equations

Using Singapore Bars to Solve Algebraic Equations

In today’s post we’re going to learn how to solve algebraic equations using the Singapore bars method. This method helps us to visualize the information graphically when we read an algebraic word problem, which helps us to solve it. Let’s look at an example of how to solve an algebraic problem with and without Singapore bars. Example of an […]
