How do we solve equations that involve fractions? Before we get started, I am assuming you already know how to solve equations by balancing: you must do the exact same thing to both sides. So lets have a look at how to solve equations involving fractions. EXAMPLE: (2f + 8) / 3 = 6. The whole of 2f plus 8 has been divided by 3. We need to move this ‘3’ first so that everything is on the same level. No denominators. So multiply both sides by 3. Multiplying by 3 and dividing by 3 on the left hand side means that the 3's cancel each other on the left hand side. This leaves a simple linear equation to solve. 2f + 8 = 6 X 3 which simplifies to 2f + 8 = 18. Solve it: 2f = 10, so answer f=5. Easy! As always, check your answer. Substitute f=5 into the original question. EXAMPLE 2: (20 + 7e) / 2 = 2e + 7. Start by multiplying both sides by 2 to remove the '2' from the denominator on the left hand side. This means the times by 2 and divide by 2 on the left hand side cancel each other out. We now have this equation: 20 + 7e = 2(2e + 7). Expand the bracket on the right hand side and solve. 20 + 7e = 4e + 14. Simplify and solve: 3e = -6. Answer: e = -2.

Not every triangle is a right-angle triangle, so we can't always use Pythagoras and SOHCAHTOA to find missing sides and missing angles. We instead use the sine rule or the cosine rule. They can both be used to find either missing sides or missing angles in any triangle (right angle or not).

Our body is a pretty fantastic feat of engineering. But how does it work? How do all of the different components come together to keep us alive, keep us functioning and achieving our goals?
In this video we are going to look at the levels of organisation in organisms, from smaller than cells to bigg

Pathogens are disease causing microorganisms, that our body has many defence mechanisms against.
The skin is the first physical barrier, providing a protective layer that is hard to penetrate. We also have sebaceous glands tha
