In today's post I've provided links to another set of exercises from the same textbook. They cover

**simplifying algebra**, including index laws and algebraic fractions. There's also an exercise on substitution and one on writing algebraically. For each exercise listed below I have included an extract so you can preview the type of questions covered.

I'll publish one more set of exercises next week - some on directed numbers, and some on factorising and expanding.

Huge thanks again to the teachers who typed these exercises up. I really appreciate the time and effort that has gone into this. Excellent teamwork!

I'm a little confused ... what does "excess" mean? e.g The excess of b over a - how would we word that today?

ReplyDeleteSubtract, I should think!

ReplyDeleteSounds to me like "remainder". Perhaps they want you to write it as remainder/divisor?
