# Simply Fun Factorising

 QuestionWhat is factorising? AnswerThis is rearranging the expression so we have terms(or letters) that are multiplied usually in brackets.  We use Algebra following certain rules. QuestionWhat is Algebra? AnswerA letter can represent an object, price, etc...   It can be thought as a case of shorthand with letters. This means that we will get expressions that have letters rather than the full titles of objects each time.
 QuestionWhy do we do factorising? AnswerTo make your calculations easier but often it is the first stumbling block in a long list! QuestionWhat do the brackets mean? AnswerThe brackets indicate that the items are multiplied so (****)(****) means (****) multiplied by (****)
 QuestionWhy do we do bother factorising again? AnswerTo shorten the expression by not writing the same letters over and over QuestionIs there only one type of factorising? AnswerNo, there are lots and you will have to choose depending on the expression. Sometimes you may have to use more than one type to fully factorise your expression!
 We use factorising to solve equations, so all variables are one side and on the other side zero.  We factorise so on one side we have terms multiplied together and zero on the other side.Follow this link to ways of     Solving Quadratics Equations
