What is the area of a rectangle? Length times Width If the length is 3 meters and the width is 2 meters, what is the area? A = L x W A = 3 x 2 = 6 meters 2 A, L and W are the variables. It is any letter that represents an unknown number.
An algebraic expression contains: 1) one or more numbers or variables, and 2) one or more arithmetic operations. Examples: x n
In expressions, there are many different ways to write multiplication. 1)ab 2)a b 3)a(b) or (a)b 4)(a)(b) 5)a x b We are not going to use the multiplication symbol any more. Why?
Division, on the other hand, is written as: 1) 2) x ÷ 3
