Algebra II on Khan Academy: Your studies in algebra 1 have built a solid foundation from which you can explore linear equations, inequalities, and functions. In algebra 2 we build upon that foundation and not only extend our knowledge of algebra 1, but slowly become capable of tackling the BIG questions of the universe. We’ll again touch on systems of equations, inequalities, and functions…but we’ll also address exponential and logarithmic functions, logarithms, imaginary and complex numbers, conic sections, and matrices. Don’t let these big words intimidate you. We’re on this journey with you!

you should have done log base 5 of x equals 4.

thats it? thats all it is? i was afraid of this my whole life?

good video Mr khan I subscribed

Thank you soo much 💕🙏🙏please do calculus with language

Am I the only one who thinks Mr. Khan sounds like the Rock?

I’m in 8th grade and man there still teaching how to solve inequalities and equations

Like damn they think we’re stupid

This is easy af and I’m sure teachers in my junior year (future) would take 5 months reviewing algebra 1 and the rest of the year doping around

This should be in schools, god knows teachers can’t explain it.

This is by far an AMAZING asmr!

such a great teacher

OK what about (log base 3) 82 = x?

Tity? 6:16

This video is such a godsend — thank you so much Mr. Khan!

Thank you so much! I have my exam soon and our teacher hated every one of us and explained absolutely terribly. I didn’t understand this chapter throughout the entire year and you’ve finally helped me understand it IN 7 MINUTES. Our teacher couldn’t do it in a year!
