Algebra I : Algebra I By Monica Yuskaitis
Definitions : Definitions Variable – A variable is a letter or symbol that represents a number (unknown quantity).
8 + n = 12
Definitions : Definitions A variable can use any letter of the alphabet.
n + 5
x – 7
w - 25
Definitions : Definitions Algebraic expression – a group of numbers, symbols, and variables that express an operation or a series of operations.
m + 8
r – 3
Definitions : Definitions Evaluate an algebraic expression – To find the value of an algebraic expression by substituting numbers for variables.
m + 8 m = 2 2 + 8 = 10
r – 3 r = 5 5 – 3 = 2
Definitions : Definitions Simplify – Combine like terms and complete all operations
m = 2
m + 8 + m 2 m + 8
(2 x 2) + 8 4 + 8 = 12
