Adding and subtracting algebraic fractions
Algebra (Year 8)
Year 8
This is the next video in the Algebra series at a Year 8 level looking at adding and subtracting algebraic fractions! I am sure your heart has already skipped a beat when you read the word fractions ... much less adding the word algebra into it!! But I've got your back here. I show you through basic examples (which get harder!) how to add fractions with numbers and then how it stays the same with algebra. There are lots of worked examples all explained in an easy to understand way.
