Learn to evaluate algebraic expressions.

Vocabulary variable constant algebraic expression evaluate

Harrison Ford was born in 1942
Harrison Ford was born in You can find out what year Harrison turned 18 by adding the year he was born to his age. 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 a.

The letter a has a value that can change, or vary
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, a is an algebraic expression for the year Ron Howard turns a certain age.

Year born + age = year at age
16 1970 18 1972 21 1975 36 1990 a a To evaluate an algebraic expression, substitute a number for the variable.

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

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

Multiplication and division of variables can be written in several ways, as shown in the table.
When evaluating expressions, use the order of operations.

Additional Example 2: Evaluating Algebraic Expressions Involving Order of Operations
Evaluate the expression for the given value of the variable. A. 4x – 3 for x = 2 4(2) – 3 Substitute 2 for x. Multiply. 8 – 3 5 Subtract.

Additional Example 2: Evaluating Algebraic Expressions Involving Order of Operations
B. s ÷ 5 + s, for s = 15 15 ÷ Substitute 15 for s. 3 + 15 Divide. 18 Add. C. 5x2 + 3x, for x = 2 5(2)2 + 3(2) Substitute 2 for x. 5(4) + 3(2) Evaluate the power. 20 + 6 Multiply. 26 Add.

Check It Out: Example 2A Evaluate the expression for the given value of the variable. A. 3x – 2 for x = 3 3(3) – 2 Substitute 3 for x. Multiply. 9 – 2 Subtract. 7

Check It Out: Example 2 B. r ÷ 3 + r, for r = 12 12 ÷ Substitute 12 for r. 4 + 12 Divide. 16 Add. C. 4y2 + 2y, for y = 3 4(3)2 + 2(3) Substitute 3 for y. 4(9) + 2(3) Evaluate the power. 36 + 6 Multiply. 42 Add.

Substitute 3 for a and 2 for b. + 4(2)
Additional Example 3: Evaluating Algebraic Expressions with Two Variables 6 a Evaluate + 4b, for a = 3 and b = 2. 6 a + 4b 6 3 Substitute 3 for a and 2 for b. + 4(2) Divide and multiply from left to right. 2 + 8 10 Add.

Substitute 4 for w and 2 for x.
Check It Out: Example 3 8 w Evaluate + 2x, for w = 4 and x = 2. 8 w + 2x 8 4 + 2(2) Substitute 4 for w and 2 for x. Divide and multiply from left to right. 2 + 4 6 Add.
