What is the area of a rectangle?
Length times Width
If the length is 3 meters and the width is 2
meters, what is the area?
A=LxW
A = 3 x 2 = 6 meters2
A, L and W are the variables. It is any
letter that represents an unknown number.
An algebraic expression
contains:
1) one or more numbers or variables, and
2) one or more arithmetic operations.
Examples:
x-3
3 • 2n
4
1
m
In expressions, there are many
different ways to write multiplication.

2)
3)
4)
5)
ab
a•b
a(b) or (a)b
(a)(b)
axb
We are not going to use the multiplication symbol
any more. Why?
Division, on the other hand, is
written as:
x
1)
3
2) x ÷ 3
Throughout this year, you will hear many

Answer Now
When looking at the expression
103, 10 is called the
base
and 3 is called the
exponent or power.
103 means 10 • 10 • 10
103 = 1000
How is it said?
21
Two to the first power
22
Two to the second power or two squared
23
Two to the third power or two cubed
2n7

4. x3 – 4
Answer Now
Evaluate.

22
2•2=4
23
2•2•2=8
2n7
We can’t evaluate because we don’t
know what n equals to!!
Is 35 the same as 53?
Evaluate each and find out!
35 = 3 • 3 • 3 • 3 • 3 = 243
53 = 5 • 5 • 5 = 125
243 ≠ 125
They are not the same!
