In this lesson, we learn how to multiply terms in algebra. The process involves multiplying numbers first and then multiplying the letters afterwards. When multiplying the same letter with another term containing that letter, we get into powers. We also learn how to deal with mixed signs, and it is important to remember directed numbers. To practice, we are encouraged to find exercises in a GCSE or numeracy textbook and complete them. The next lesson will cover dividing algebraic fractions.
A quick explanation of multiplying terms. Assumes knowledge of indices and directed numbers.
