Simplifying Expressions | Algebra | Maths

In this video we’re going to look at how to simplify algebraic expressions. Before we get started on simplifying, a few things to remember: (1) we always use a use a curly x for the letter x in algebra. (2) We don’t really use the multiplication sign. 3a is how we write 3 X a. […]

Solving Algebraic Fractions | Algebra | Maths

Algebraic fractions are simply fractions with algebraic expressions either on the top, bottom or both. We treat them in the same way as we would numerical fractions. In part 1 we saw how to simplify, and add and subtract algebraic fractions. We discovered that algebraic fractions follow the same principles as numeric fractions. In this […]
