In
simplifying
an algebraic expression you have to write it in its most condensed
form, careful not to change the value of the expression by combining
like terms
, or in
other words,
simplifying an expression or an equation using addition and subtraction of
the
coefficients
of terms.
Numbers will be used to multiply variables, which is another
way of explaining coefficient. It is important to understand
the properties of algebra in
order to correctly put the expressions and equations into their simplest forms by moving
terms around to solve or simplify the expressions. The use of
distributive
property is the
distribution of multiplication over addition. It says that when a number is multiplied by
the sum of two other numbers, the first number can be handed out or distributed to both
of those two numbers and multiplied by each of them separately. There will be several
examples of distributive property in the equations to follow. This assignment is to
simplify three different expressions by the use of the properties of real numbers. In using
