Number: Fractions, Find one number as a percentage of Know that you can increase a number Use fractions, decimals and negative decimals and percentages another (e.g. 45 out of 80 students are by 8% by multiplying it by 1.08. numbers in calculations. girls. What percentage is this?) Know that you can decrease a number Add and subtract fractions by finding by 12% by multiplying it by 0.88. common denominator. Converting between fractions, decimals and percentages. Ordering decimals (e.g. know that 0.318 is smaller than 0.32) Algebra: Equations Solve equations like 7n 2 5n 14 . Solving simultaneous equations. Harder equations involving brackets, Solve simple inequalities like fractions. Equations with negative and 2n + 1 < 9. Representing inequalities on a fractional solutions. number line.
