Key Algebra Terms

Algebraic Expression: A mathematical phrase combining numbers, variables, and operations without an equal sign, featuring at least two terms.

Coefficient: A numerical factor in a term that is attached to a variable; it indicates how many times the variable is multiplied.

Constant: A fixed value that does not change and stands alone in an expression.

Term: Individual components of an expression, which are separated by operations such as addition or subtraction.

Variable: A symbol (usually a letter) that represents one or more numbers within an expression or equation.

Equivalent Expression: Different expressions that yield the same result for any value assigned to the variable, highlighting the concept of equality in algebra.

Equation: A mathematical statement asserting that two expressions are equivalent, typically involving an equal sign.

Solution: The specific value that, when substituted for the variable in an equation, results in a true statement.

Inequality: A relational statement that compares two expressions, indicating that one is greater than, less than, or not equal to the other.

Exponent: A notation indicating how many times the base number is multiplied by itself, essential in representing powers.

Base: The number that is multiplied by itself as indicated by the exponent; it is the foundational number in exponential expressions.

Evaluate: The process of calculating the value of an expression by performing all indicated operations.

Order of Operations: A set of rules guiding the sequence in which calculations should be performed to ensure consistency and correctness when evaluating expressions.
