A series of exercises on remarkable identities and literal calculus in the third grade (3ème).These exercises are intended for teachers and students of the third grade who wish to revise the chapter on remarkable identities and literal calculus online.
To continue the notions seen in fifth grade (simple distributivity) and in fourth grade (double distributivity),
you will find in this series of mathematical exercises on literal calculation, the following notions :
 definition of an algebraic or literal expression;
 reduce and expand a literal expression;
 factor a literal expression;
 substitution.
These corrected exercises of maths in third grade (3ème) have been written by a maths teacher
and can be viewed online or downloaded in PDF format.

Exercise 9:
Here are two calculation programs.
a. Apply each program to the numbers :
3; 10 and – 5 and then to another randomly chosen number
What do we see? Make a conjecture.
b. We note n the number chosen at the beginning.
Express the result obtained with each program as a function of n.
Prove the conjecture made in question a.
