How do we expand brackets?

By multiplying terms to remove the brackets.
Simplification is required when possible.

What is the tool used to expand TWO brackets?

FOIL
Foil+Diagram (binary/octetstream)

\[a^2b^2\]

What is the definition of factorisation?

The operation of resolving a quantity into factors
It is the opposite to expanding brackets
4(2x6y) = 8x24y so 8x24y can be factored into 4(2x6y)

How do we factorise simple (linear) expressions?

1. Find the highest common factor (HCF) of all of the terms in the equation
2. Put this quantity outside of the brackets
3. Fill the bracket with terms needed to multiply the HCF to give us the original equation

Factorise the following linear expression:
\[6x4y\]

1. The highest common factor between 6x and 4y is 2
2. 6x4y = 2
3. 3x gives 6x when multiplied by 2 and 2y gives 4y when multiplied by 2
Therefore 6x4y = 2(3x2y)

Factorise:
\[x^216\]
\[9x^2100\]

\[x^24^2 = (x+4)(x4)\]
\[(3x)^210^2 = (3x+10)(3x10)\]

State the coefficient, variable and power in the following expression:
\[9x^4\]

Coefficient = 9
Variable = x
Power = 4

What is a linear expression?

An algebraic expression consisting of one variable and a constant
4x+3

What are monomials with zero powers?

Simply coefficients
\[5x^0 = 5\]

State the numerator and denominator is the following fraction:
\[\frac{a}{b}\]

Numerator = a
Denominator = b
