When it comes to very basic mathematics, like arithmetic and pre-algebra / algebra, I suggest you use Khan Academy. It is completely free, they have video tutorials for all the basic subjects, as well as exercises you can solve to improve.

You can find them here: https://www.khanacademy.org

When it comes to the basics, there are no shortcuts... you just have to put in the time and effort.

Good Luck!

I have a beginner question .
What happens when a number and x comes together ?

Is that called an Algebraic expression ?

I think that is where i should start , with Algebraic expressions .

an example of an algebraic equation would be 2x + 5 = 10
an example of an algebraic expression would be 2(x + 8y)

Try Pemberton Mathematics or the CGP books for GCSE'S. They're both pretty detailed in their explications and have loads of questions to work through.
