Evaluating Expressions with One Variable
An “expression” is a mathematical expression that includes variables but isn’t an
equation.
A “variable” is a letter or symbol that represents a number. Any of these can be
used as variables:
Ú
k p
m
f
a
b
x
y
z
These are all examples of algebraic expressions that use variables:
∆+ 2
3p
5x – 8
To evaluate an algebraic expression means to simplify it down to one value, or
number. But first, we need to know what number the variable represents.
Example 1
Evaluate the expression
if
a = –2
if
a =4
if
a =

if
z = –2
if
z=0
