### Intermediate Algebra, 5th Edition

Intermediate Algebra, 5th Edition

The main focus of INTERMEDIATE ALGEBRA, 5e, is to address the fundamental needs of todays developmental math students. Offering a uniquely modern, balanced program, INTERMEDIATE ALGEBRA, 5e, integrates conceptual understanding with traditional skill and practice reinforced through visual and interactive practice in Enhanced WebAssign, available exclusively from Cengage Learning. By helping students understand the language of algebra and the why behind problem solving through instructional approaches and worked examples, they are better equipped to succeed at the how. Practice is essential in making these connections and it is emphasized in INTERMEDIATE ALGEBRA, 5e, with additional practice problems both in the text and Enhanced WebAssign. Give your students confidence by showing them how Algebra is not just about the x…its also about the WHY.. 1. A REVIEW OF BASIC ALGEBRA. The Language of Algebra. The Real Numbers.
