1. Layout: Text is clear and source is given. But you all could add pictures to help illustrate your points.

Content: Content is relevant, easy to understand and reliable. However you all did not add examples for INDEX NOTATION and PRME FACTORISATION.

Names: Lynette Tan, Kimberly Tan and Chelsea Seah.

2. I think it is very easy to understand and is straight to the point and there is sufficient explanations. Yu Hin, Qayyum, Bryan Goh.
