How to solve simultaneous statements?
Simultaneous statements were first introduced in Primary 4. This example is a Primary 5 simultaneous question. “Simultaneous concept” is arithmetic math. It is solving 2 unknowns with 2 number statements. This is a useful skill to acquire early in the year as it can be applied to solve subsequent problem sums.
