FINDING THE VALUE OF AN EXPRESSION
We know that the value of an algebraic expression depends on the values of the variables
forming the expression. There are a number of situations in which we need to find the value
of an expression, such as when we wish to check whether a particular value of a variable
satisfies a given equation or not.
We find values of expressions, also, when we use formulas from geometry and from
everyday mathematics. For example, the area of a square is l
, where l is the length of a
side of the square. If l = 5 cm., the area is 52 cm2
or 25 cm2
; if the side is 10 cm, the area
is 102 cm2
or 100 cm2
and so on.
Thus, the sum of two or more like terms is a like term with a numerical coefficient
equal to the sum of the numerical coefficients of all the like terms.
Similarly, the difference between two like terms is a like term with a numerical
coefficient equal to the difference between the numerical coefficients of the two
Note, unlike terms cannot be added or subtracted the way like terms are added
or subtracted. We have already seen examples of this, when 5 is added to x, we write the
result as (x + 5). Observe that in (x + 5) both the terms 5 and x are retained.
Similarly, if we add the unlike terms 3xy and 7, the sum is 3xy + 7.
If we subtract 7 from 3xy, the result is 3xy – 7
