Mate, in the other thread you were saying how thick people were for not knowing sum cubic equation that no-one has ever heard of and that isnt on any a level syllabus. Now youre struggling with simple P1 level algebra?

Either your having a joke in this post or in the last? Which one was it?

Hmmm,

By 16/4 do you mean that everything in those brackets is divided by 4, or that 16 is (basically 4).

Collecting like terms we did in year 7.

Oh,

And when you say simplify,

Do you mean collecting like terms or factorisation?
