There are two terms with just one m: Then there are two with one n: Those two with an mn? And what do you do with an exponent raised to an exponent?

You multiply them together. Remember, we can distribute that a across the parentheses. And do we have any like terms? Okay, lots to do here. First, note that nothing inside the parentheses can be simplified. They all involve addition or subtraction with different variables.

In this lesson, we practiced simplifying algebraic expressions. We became experts at combining like terms and utilizing the distributive property. With these methods, we made long, complicated expressions much simpler and easier to understand. We also talked football and cookies, because all things should involve exercise and baked goods.

This is intended for low ability students or those that are new to the topic of simplifying expressions. The worksheet asks students to simplify expressions which include only one variable.

In this lesson, we'll practice simplifying a variety of algebraic expressions. We'll use two key concepts, combining like terms and the distributive property, to help us simplify. Learn how to simplify algebraic expressions by combining like terms. The expressions in this video have decimal and fraction coefficients.

We've learned about order of operations and combining like terms. Let's layer the distributive property on top of this. Before you evaluate an algebraic expression, you need to simplify it. This will make all your calculations much easier. Here are the basic steps to follow to simplify an algebraic expression.
