This week in maths we have been learning about algebra and have been doing some really challenging questions. Once you get to know how to do it you will find it really easy. Algebra is when you divide, multiply,add and subtract numbers but some of the numbers are replaced with letters and you need to work out how much the letter is worth.

Here are some examples of the algebra questions we have been solving:

Mr Walker orders x boxes of pencils. He gives 30 to the class and orders 2 more. How many has Mr Walker got now?

Mr White order x boxes of sweets .He gives 5 boxes to Mr Walker and he also gives 5 to Miss Stott . How may boxes are sweets are left ?

There are x tubes of slime. Mr Walker stole 7 tubes and then decided to put 2 back. How many tubes of slime is there now?
