    Re: Nineth class mathematics

    What do you mean by "ninth class" and "tenth class"? They mean nothing to me. You misspelt "ninth" in your title.

    We don't use "than of" in this context.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: Nineth class mathematics

    "The maths of grade nine is much more difficult than that of grade ten."
    "Grade nine maths is much more difficult than grade ten maths."
    Perhaps that's what you mean. If it is, I'd suggest that it possibly only seems more difficult because, in grade nine, the initial concepts that grade ten maths relies on are taught.

    Re: Nineth class mathematics

    But I was told I misspelt "ninth" and I had written the same spelling thats why I did the correction and I had to use the same words that I used in original question. I just had to correct the spelling but you are saying "ninth" is correct, "nineth" is incorret.

    Re: Nineth class mathematics

    When someone writes you misspelled "word", they spell word correctly. They don't repeat the misspelling.
    I am not a teacher.

    I corrected it in the original title as I didn't want to keep reading nineth in perpetuity on the opening page or to have other students thinking it was correct.

    I can't change it for every answering post.
