I'm finding it very difficult to simplify expressions:
Can anyone tell me the method:
For example:
3cd2 The 2 is supposed to be a 'squared sign'
5cd
Well if you have a fraction like that you see whats on the top and whats on the bottom and then you look to see what you can simplify (get rid of) e.g.
Simplify:
First imagine the fraction in similar segmented fractions (if that is even grammatically correct)
Now work them out individually:
cannot be simplified so it remains the same.
Now combine them (put them back)
However even this can be simplified;
This seems a bit long-winded but once you get the hang of it, it becomes much quicker and easier. Now try yours.
