 # Algebra: Substitution into Expressions with Fractions (1)

In this worksheet, students substitute values into expressions with fractions. Key stage:  KS 3

Curriculum topic:   Algebra

Curriculum subtopic:   Substitute Numerical Values for Formulae/Expressions

Difficulty level:   ### QUESTION 1 of 10

When we substitute a number for a letter, we simply replace the letter with the number.

Example

Work out the value of the following expression when a = 4 and b = 9

 a + b 2 3

We substitute a = 4 and b = 9 into the following expression:

 a + b 2 3

 = 4 + 9 2 3

=  2  +  3  =  5

Work out the value of the following expression when a = 6 and b = 12

 a + b 2 3

Work out the value of the following expression when a = 6 and b = 12

 a - b 2 3

Work out the value of the following expression when a = 10 and b = 6

 a + b 5 3

Work out the value of the following expression when a = 10 and b = -12

 a + b 5 3

Work out the value of the following expression when a = 6 and b = 25

 a + b 2 5

Work out the value of the following expression when a = 6 and b = 12

 a - b 6 3

Work out the value of the following expression when a = 14 and b = 18

 a - b 7 3

Work out the value of the following expression when a = 6 and b = -30

 a - b 2 5

Work out the value of the following expression when a = 35 and b = 35

 a + b 5 7

Work out the value of the following expression when a = -16 and b = 72

 a + b 2 8
