Number and Algebra

Algebraic expressions

Algebra has been introduced using only whole numbers for pronumerals. Now we will extend the methods you know to integers and to simple positive and negative fractions. In turn, we will cover substitution, collecting like terms, taking products, and expanding brackets using the distributive law. This provides all the skills needed to solve straightforward linear equations, without the constraints of avoiding negative coefficients.
