In fact, algebra is used almost daily in most peoples lives such as buying gas, figuring out how much money they have to purchase a specific item and what will be left to add on, and of course in specific job fields such as accounting, or working payroll. However, the specific question at hand to be examined is the importance of real numbers and how they are used to simplify algebraic expressions. Understanding how real numbers is applied and used to break down and simplify algebraic expressions is what allows us to use algebra to solve daily mathematical problems as stated above. The idea behind algebra and how its expressions simplify the problem by combining like terms to break down the problem to find a, b, c, or x (so on and so forth). There is also parenthesis in each equation that is used to infer an order for solving the equation. Once the proper order is followed the person can then begin to further
