Simplifying Expressions Simplifying expressions is one of the core basics for algebra simplification. The goal is taking the distributive property , which is used to apply multiplying a number by a group of numbers added together, but it is used in the removal of the parentheses . It is combining Like Terms, which must have the same variable or exponent and simplifying those expressions. We are taking these algebraic expressions and applying the five core terms in this step by step evaluation of the three given equations. The following three given expression will be shown how to actively use the distributive property in order to accurately succeed in the removal of the parentheses . 2a(a-5) + 4(a-5) The Given Expression. 2a 2 -10a+4(a-5) The distributive property includes the variables added to the exponent. 2a 2 -10a+4a-20 The distributive property removes the parentheses. 2a 2 -6a-20 Adding the coefficients by the combined Like Terms. The simplified expression: 2a 2 -6a-20. The expression doesn’t need to be simplified longer since nothing else can go into the expressions since the like terms have already been simplified in order. While simplifying the following expressions, the properties of real numbers will be used and identified. The math work will be aligned on above on the left while the discussion of properties is on the right side of each line.
