Unit 25 Solving Equations 25.1 Algebraic Fractions

You can sometimes simplify fractions when the numerator and denominator are factorial. Example Simplify ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ?

Unit 25 Solving Equations 25.2 Algebraic Fractions and Quadratic Equations

Solution First combine the two fractions on the LHS by putting them over a common denominator. ? Simplify to give Divide each term by 4 Factorise Either or So or Example Solve ? ? ? ? ? ? ? Multiply both sides byto give ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ?? ?

Unit 25 Solving Equations 25.3 Solving Simultaneous Equations: One Linear and One Quadratic

To solve simultaneous equations when one is linear and one quadratic, you have to first eliminate one variable. You can do this by substituting one of the variables from the linear equation into the quadratic equation, forming a new quadratic in just one variable. Example Solve the simultaneous equation This is a quadratic that can be factorised to give Solution You can eliminate y by taking one equation from the other to give or ? ? ? ? So or and or ? ? ? Either or etc.
