Algebraic fractions at a glance


Algebraic fractions are fractions which include an algebraic term. The algebraic term may be in its numerator, or denominator or both. 


Working with algebraic fractions is a progression from numerical fractions and will help to deepen your understanding of fractions.


For example, equivalent fractions are used to write algebraic fractions in their simplest form by cancelling common factors in the numerator and denominator. Common denominators are also used for adding or subtracting algebraic fractions so that they can then be written as a single algebraic fraction. 


Multiplying and dividing are also included as part of algebraic fractions.


When working with algebraic fractions many other algebraic skills are used, such as solving equations, starting with linear equations and moving onto quadratic equations. 


Looking forward, students can then progress to additional simplifying expressions worksheets and on to more algebra worksheets, for example a straight line graphs worksheet or simultaneous equations worksheet.
