Slide 2

Variable – A variable is a letter or symbol that represents a number (unknown quantity).

8 + n = 12

Slide 3

Definitions

A variable can use any letter of the alphabet.

n + 5

x – 7

w - 25

Slide 4

Definitions

Algebraic expression – a group of numbers, symbols, and variables that express an operation or a series of operations.

m + 8

r – 3

Slide 5

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

Slide 6

Definitions

Simplify – Combine like terms and complete all operations

m = 2

m + 8 + m 2 m + 8

(2 x 2) + 8 4 + 8 = 12
