6 1-6 Variables and Algebraic Expressions Harrison Ford was born in 1942. You can find out what year Harrison turned 18 by adding the year he was born to his age. 1942 + 18 In algebra, letters are often used to represent numbers. You can use a letter such as a to represent Harrison Ford’s age. When he turns a years old, the year will be 1942 + a.

7 1-6 Variables and Algebraic Expressions The letter a has a value that can change, or vary. When a letter represents a number that can vary, it is called a variable. The year 1954 is a constant because the number cannot change. An algebraic expression consists of one or more variables. It usually contains constants and operations. For example, 1942 + a is an algebraic expression for the year Ron Howard turns a certain age.

8 1-6 Variables and Algebraic Expressions To evaluate an algebraic expression, substitute a number for the variable. AgeYear born + age = year at age 161954 + 161970 181954 + 181972 211954 + 211975 361954 + 361990 a1954 + a

9 1-6 Variables and Algebraic Expressions Evaluate k + 9 for each value of k. Additional Example 1: Evaluating Algebraic Expressions A. k = 5 k + 9 5 + 9 14 Substitute 5 for k. Add. B. k = 2 k + 9 2 + 9Substitute 2 for k. 11 Add.

10 1-6 Variables and Algebraic Expressions Check It Out: Example 1 Evaluate a + 6 for each value of a. A. a = 3 a + 6 3 + 6 9 Substitute 3 for a. Add. B. a = 5 a + 6 5 + 6Substitute 5 for a. 11 Add.

11 1-6 Variables and Algebraic Expressions Multiplication and division of variables can be written in several ways, as shown in the table. When evaluating expressions, use the order of operations.
