2Algebra: Simplifying ExpressionsThe properties of algebraic expressions can be quite complex to understand, butthey are equally important to learn when solving methods and simplifying problems. Aperson must be able to break or move terms around making sure to properly putequations and expressions into the most simple of forms. For this paper I will be usingthe following vocabulary words to show you my understanding of their meaning and howthey relate to my math work. Distributive propertyis commonly used for theapplication of multiplication through several terms within the boundaries of parenthesesresulting in the removal of parentheses. Like termssuch as associative propertiesuse the same variables raised to the same exponent, whereas the order of numbers in acommutative property calculation will not affect the result, coefficientscan be added tolike terms because they are a constant that multiplies a variable. I will now attempt to
