Simultaneous equations require algebraic skills to find the values of letters within two or more equations. They are called simultaneous equations because the equations are solved at the same time.

In this class students will learn how to solve simultaneous equations by rearranging and substituting as well as subtracting equations from one another. This is a grade 5 and above topic, which can appear in both the higher and foundation GCSE paper.
