G. 5 = 2. 5 to both sides. g. Solve 4x = 14. x = 3 12 Dividing both sides by 4. e. equations) except that when multiplying or dividing by a negative number you must reverse the inequality sign. g. 4y + 6 < 26 4y < 20 Taking 6 from both sides. y<5 Dividing both sides by 4. g. Solve x = 7. g. Solve 6(3x – 5) = 42. 6 × 3x + 6 × –5 = 42 18x – 30 = 42 18x = 72 x=4 Alternatively: 6(3x – 5) = 42 3x – 5 = 7 3x = 12 x=4 32 Multiplying both sides by 3. y<5 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 The open circle means the value 5 is not included.

Expanding and factorising Brackets are used to group algebraic terms and the process of removing the brackets is called expanding. The process of rewriting an expression including the brackets is called factorising. g. Expand and simplify the following. 2a – 3(4b – 3a) = 2a – 3 × 4b – 3 × –3a = 2a – 12b + 9a = 11a – 12b Factorising into brackets To factorise an expression, look for terms that have common factors. g. Factorise the following. 10a – 15 = 5(2a – 3) 9rs + 12st = 3s(3r + 4t) 8ab2 – 16a2b = 8ab(b – 2a) NB You should check your answers by expanding the brackets.

E. either (x – 5) = 0 which implies that x = 5 or (x + 3) = 0 which implies that x = –3. So the solutions of the equation (x – 5)(x + 3) = 0 are x = 5 and x= –3. g. Solve the quadratic equation x2 – 6x – 27 = 0. To solve the equation, factorise the left-hand side of the equation (see Algebra card 3) and then solve as before. Factorising the left-hand side of the equation: x2 – 6x – 27 = (x )(x ) Now search for two numbers which multiply together to give –27. Try substituting: 1 × –27 gives 1 × +27 gives + 9 × –3 gives – 9 × +3 gives + – – – 27: 27: – 27: – 27: (x + 1)(x – 27) = x2 – 26x – 27 (x – 1)(x + 27) = x2 + 26x – 27 (x + 9)(x – 3) = x2 + 6x – 27 (x – 9)(x + 3) = x2 – 6x – 27 ✓ The quadratic equation can be written (x – 9)(x + 3) = 0 and since the product of the two brackets is zero then the expression inside one or both of them must be zero.
