# Can George cope with algebra

George is having an online lesson and quickly demonstrates his ability to solve equations but wonders if it is his sanity that is being questioned and not his mathematical ability.

George is willing to have a go at learning how to solve equations and informs Gus that his previous maths teacher only considered him to be average. George is not impressed by the ensuing joke but once again in the lesson demonstrates that he understands the steps and can solve simple linear equations. He was a bit unhappy that the praise for the ability he showed was not a bit more generous.
