- When we are factorising expressions by grouping we need to take care of the signs ... for instance ... 1 + 2t - k - 2kt = (1+2t) - k(1 + 2t) ... the LEFT hand term (1 + 2t) is the same as 1(1 + 2t) ... hence, when we factorise the expression, there is a COMMON factor of (1+2t) ... leaving us with ... (1+2t)(1 - k) ... some of you have forgotten the (1) in the term (1 - k) !!!
- When we work with algebraic fractions, make sure that you FACTORISE both the NUMERATOR and DENOMINATOR !!!
