These are easy to do. Ignore the zeros, so for 10 x 40 do 1 x 4 = 4 then place the ignored zeros on the end of your answer. Then, being careful to line up the correct digits add all of the numbers in the grid using column addition. 4 0 0 5 0 2 0 0 + 2 5 6 7 5

6 2 2 1 0 2 Long Division There are many fancy ways to do this, but we think that the old fashioned way is the best. Example 37908 ÷ 52 Set it out using the bus stop method.

52 3 7 9 0 8

space the digits out! So how many 52’s go into 3? None!

How many 52’s go into 37? Again, it won’t go. How many 52’s in 379? This is where the only way to answer it is by writing out the first 9 numbers in the 52 times table. You start with 52 and amazingly it goes up in 52s. You can do this by adding 50 then adding 2: 52

104

468

The closest number to 379 WITHOUT GOING PAST 379 is 364, which is the 7th number along. The remainder is found by doing 379 – 364 = 15 so put this in front of the 0 7 52 3 7 9 15 0 8 Now we do 52’s into 150, obviously twice (104 is closest WITHOUT GOING PAST 150), remainder is 46, which goes in front of the 8.

7 2 52 3 7 9 15 0 468 Now we do 52’s into 468. It is exactly the 9th number along So the final sum would look like this: 7 2 9 52 3 7 9 15 0 468

It looks difficult, but with most maths practice makes perfect.

Percentages of amounts These questions can turn up on the calculator or non-calculator section of the exam. Calculator method 24% of £60 Change the percentage to a fraction (easy, because it’s always out of 100) and change the ‘of’ to a x. 24 x 60 100 Now just press it in to your calculator = £14.40 Non calculator method I call this the 10% method eg 1)

30% of 80 10% is 8

So 30% is 8 x 3 = 24

eg 2) Find the VAT on £120 Now VAT is always 17.5% So 10% is £12 5% is £6 2.5% is £3 Therefore 17.5% is 12 + 6 + 3 = £21

eg 3)

Find 21% of 140 10% is 14 20% is 28 1% is 1.4 So 21% is 29.4

In some questions you will need to do an addition or subtraction at the end. For the following examples we will use the calculator method.

eg 1)

A gas bill of £60 is reduced by 20%. What is the final bill?

20% of £60 20 x 60 = £12 100 So final bill is 60 - 12 = £48

eg 2) A car costs £2000 + VAT How much do you actually pay for the car? 17.5% of 2000 17.5 100

x 2000

= £350

So final cost = 2000 + 350 = £2350

Basic algebra The basics a + a + a = 3a a x a x a = a3 Don’t get them confused! The above are fundamentals that you should know. Also, we get lazy and don’t use the x sign or the number 1 much. So 4y really means 4 x y and y really means 1y (1x y if you really want) Terms and expressions A term is a collection of numbers and letters multiplied together. egs) 4x or 5 or y or 4xy2 or 10abc All the above are terms (even if it’s just a letter or just a number) are separated by + and ─ signs. eg) 4x + 5 ─ y + 4y2 ─ 10abc This is now an algebra expression (with 5 terms in it). Don’t get an algebra expression confused with an algebra equation, equations have equals signs but expressions don’t. eg)

4x = 5x + 6 4x ─ 5x + 6

Equation. You solve this. Expression. You simplify this.

Simplifying expressions Method Collect up like terms, using you number line. Worked examples 1) 4x + 5x ─ 2x = 7x 2) 5x + 2y ─ x ─ 6y = 4x ─ 4y (check where we got the ─4y from in eg 2) We did 2y ─ 6y = ─ 4y. Muppets will put 8y, because they are ignoring the ─ sign and not using a number line. 3) 4p ─2q + 7p ─ 4q = 11q ─ 6q You can’t simplify 11p ─ 6q anymore. It’s not 5pq!

Note If you have terms with an x in between, you can collect terms. eg: 5p x 2q = 10pq Repeating again though: 5p + 2q has gone as far as it can go. It does not simplify to 7pq!

Algebra substitution There are 3 reasons why students struggle with this type of question. 1) It’s algebra after all - and we know students think about that! 2) They struggle to identify what type of algebra it is. 3) MINUS SIGNS – This as the main reason why students who attempt this question get it horribly wrong. They just can’t seem to cope with them. I hope these notes will help you with that. Recognising the topic You’ll recognise it as algebra, but how will you know that it’s substitution? Well firstly you will be given an algebra expression. (not an equation with an = sign) Then you will be given the numerical values of the letters in the expression. You will then be asked to substitute the letters in order to work out the value of the expression. Example:

a 2 + 5bc

Calculate the value of:

if a = 4, b = 2, c = 1 Method Substituting gives: 42 + 5 x 2 x 1 = 16 + 10 = 26 Those dreaded MINUS SIGNS! Example:

If x = 3, y = ─4 and z = ─5 Find the value of x + y2 ─ 4z

Method Substituting gives: 3+ (─ 4)2 ─ 4 x ─ 5 Now (─ 4)2 = ─ 4 x ─ 4 = +16 and ─ 4 x ─ 5 = +20 so its 3 + 16 + 20 = 39 Key point If you substitute negative numbers into a calculator, always put them in brackets. Nobody knows why but if you don’t the calculator works it out wrong!

Solving linear equations This is a huge topic. They are going to ask you a PAGE FULL OF these, trust me. As well as that they sneak into other areas of the maths curriculum. They are not easy but two things will help you: 1) Follow the METHOD 2) Practice hundreds of them! Recognise the question Algebra expressions don’t have an equal sign eg) 4x – 7y + 3x Algebra equations do have an equal sign. eg) 7x = 3x + 2 You simplify expressions and solve equations. So if you have decided that it’s an equation, you have another choice to make. Is it a linear equation? Well it will be linear when there are no powers on the letters. If there are, then you don’t solve them like we are going to do in this booklet. Examples X2 + 7x = 52 7x – 4 = 2x + 5

NOT linear Linear

So you now know how to IDENTIFY the question in the exam (a crucial skill indeed!) So how do you solve them? Here are some examples to demonstrate the method. Example 1 x +3=7 Now I bet that you know the value of x. Of course it’s 4. But we are going to start using the method even on the easy-peasy ones. Method 1) You want letters on the left hand side of the equal sign, and numbers on the right. (something like 4y you could argue is both, but you assume it’s a letter). 2) If it’s already on the correct side, just drop it down. 3) If it’s on the wrong side, then move it but change its sign. + goes to – x goes to ÷ Square goes to √ Back to our example: x+3 =7 x =7–3 x=4

Example 2 5y – 3 = 2y + 6 5y – 2y = 3 + 6 3y = 9 y=9 3 y=3 Linear equations with brackets With these you have to expand the brackets out first. Example 5(2a + 3) = 45 10a + 15 = 45 10a = 45 – 15 10a = 30 a = 30 10 a=3

Averages and range There are 3 types of averages that you may be asked to work out:

MEAN

MODE

MEDIAN

The mean This is where you add up the numbers and divide by how many numbers there is: Find the mean of 5, 9, 6 and 8 5+ 9 + 6 + 8 = 28 There are 4 numbers so 28 ÷ 4 = 7 Sometimes though the exams are a little nastier than this and ask you other types of questions to do with the mean. eg) 3 numbers have a mean of 4 what are they? If three numbers have a mean of 4 then when you add them up divide by 3 you get 4. This means that they add up to (3 x 4) 12. So it’s any 3 numbers that add up to 12 5,5,2

4,4,4

6,1,5

7,8,-3 the list is endless

If you are given the mean and how many numbers remember the sum of the numbers is the mean times by the number of numbers. The median This where you put the numbers in order and find the middle one: Find the median of 5, 7, 2, 4 and 8

Perimeter and area of shapes The main problem here is that you will get these things mixed up all the time. Read this guide 97 times and it might cure your problem. Perimeter This is the distance all the way around the outside of a 2-D shape. You ADD UP all the lengths of the sides. This includes sides that do not have a length written on them. eg)

Area This is the amount of space inside the shape. If you have squares within a shape, you can count the squares in order to find the area of the shape. This is rarely the case though. You will more than likely need to use a formula. Area of squares/rectangles

Area of triangles

Note 1 – Everyone forgets the divide 2 bit. Note 2 – The base doesn’t have to be on the bottom, but the base and perpendicular height have to be at right angles.

Area of parallelograms/rhombus

Area of trapeziums Well first of all how do you recognise a trapezium? It belongs to the family of 4 sided shapes we call quadrilaterals, but other than that it is a sad little shape with hardly anything going for it. The only thing it has is a pair of parallel sides.

An easy way to remember which shapes you divide two with is (TTT) Triangles, Trapeziums divide by Two

Area of compound shapes These are complicated shapes that can be split into simpler shapes that you know the area of. Let’s do a worked example

The key behind this type of question is to show all your working out steps.

Probability

Probability questions usually require numbers not words for answers. Unless they clearly want you to use words: eg: What is the probability that Mr Harrisons hair will be an afro by June? Choose from: Likely, unlikely, impossible. This type of question is rare though, and its much more likely that they want a numerical answer. This can be a fraction, decimal or percentage (usually a fraction). So if you have a question like: What is the probability of getting a 4 on a dice? and you put unlikely for the answer, then you would get no marks. Example A bag contains 8 counters, 5 are blue and the rest are yellow a) prob (a blue counter)

= 5 8

b) prob (a yellow counter) = 3 8 c) prob (a pink counter)

= 0 (there are no pink ones!)

Note - All probabilities are between 0 and 1 The probability of the opposite happening This is easy: It’s just the rest of the probability that’s left over. eg) If the probability that Mr Caudwell will tell a well funny joke is 0∙3, what is the probability that his joke is not funny? Answer: 0 ∙ 7

(1 − 0 ∙3)

Number sequences We are mainly looking at how to form general formulas for number sequences. These formulas are called nth term formulas. There is a clear set method for how you derive (find) an nth term formula for a particular sequence. An example will show you the method clearly, so here goes: Example Find the nth term formula for the sequence 4, 7,10,13,16, ………… Method 1) Find how you get from one term to the next. (I call it the gap number) Here it is +3 N.B Numbers in sequences are often called terms. 2) Multiply your gap number by n, so we are now at 3n. 3) Write down how you get from your gap number to the first number (term) in your sequence. For this example to get from 3 to 4 it’s +1 So our answer is 3n +1 How do we use this formula? Well we can use it to find any term in your sequence. This therefore makes it a very powerful tool. So for our example, if we wanted to find to 50 th term in the sequence, using our nth term formula makes it easy. (You substitute the n in the formula for 50). So 50th term = 3 x 50 + 1 = 151 More examples eg 2) -10,-15,-20,-25 …… nth term = – 5n – 5 …… nth term = 4n – 24

eg 3) -20,-16,12,-8

The gap is actually positive because although the question is riddled with minus signs, the sequence is increasing Fractional sequences eg 4)

For this type of example, form an nth term formula for the numerator and an nth term formula for the denominator. nth term =

Two special sequences These are: Square number sequences Cube number sequences Watch for them, because you use none of the above methods!! Square numbers 1, 4, 9, 16, 25, 36,…………. nth term = n2

obvious? Cube numbers 1, 8, 27, 64, 125,…………. nth term = n3

obvious? Note You can have sequences with gaps that are not constant. eg) 5, 7, 10, 14, 19……. There is a formula to find the nth term for these sequences, but it is very complicated so I have decided not to include it in this booklet. Don’t worry, it is rarely asked and would only be answered by geeky Albert Einstein types.
