## Study Notes

### Combining Like Terms Concepts

• Combining Like Terms: Process of simplifying expressions by adding or subtracting terms that have the same variables.
• Like Terms: Terms that contain the same variables raised to the same power, and constants are also categorized as like terms.

### Algebraic Expressions

• Algebraic Expression: Comprises variables, numbers, and operations without an equal sign; often requires simplification.
• Numerical Expression: Only consists of numbers and operations without variables or an equal sign.

### Key Terms in Algebra

• Variable: A symbol (commonly a letter) representing an unknown number.
• Terms: Components of an expression separated by operations; include the sign preceding each term.

### Simplification Techniques

• Simplify: To express an algebraic expression in the simplest form by combining like terms.
• Example Expressions:
• 5x + 7 + 9x simplifies to 14x + 7.
• 2x + 9 + 8 + 3x simplifies to 5x + 17.
• 9 - 6 + 7x - 2x + 3 simplifies to 5x + 6.

### Mathematical Properties

• Commutative Property: Addition or multiplication can be performed in any order without changing the result.
• Associative Property: Changing the grouping of numbers during addition or multiplication does not alter the total.

### Expressions with Numbers

• 5 more than a number: Expressed as x + 5.
• The difference of a number and 5: Written as x - 5.
• 5 divided by a number: Represented as 5 ÷ x.
• 5 minus a number: Denoted as 5 - x.

### Converting Numbers

• Converting to Percent: For example, 10% is expressed as 0.10.
• Decimal to Percent Conversion: 98.2 corresponds to 982%.
• Fraction Representation: 69% can be written as 69/100.

### General Notes

• Understanding these concepts is essential for solving algebraic equations and simplifying expressions effectively.
• Practice combining like terms and using properties of operations to enhance problem-solving skills in algebra.
