Algebraic fractions are a grade 7 and above topic which require students to simplify expressions that involve fractions. This topic appears regularly in the GCSE Higher Maths Exams and needs to be mastered for students seeking to go on to study A-levels. Simplifying algebraic fractions works in the same way as simplifying normal fractions. A common factor must be found and divided throughout.
