**Translating Algebraic Expressions**

Math Translating Algebraic Expressions By: Darala Hartwell

2
Remember: 1. A variable is a letter used to represent an unknown value. 2. A numerical expression includes numbers and operations. 3. An algebraic expression contains variables, numbers and operations.

3
**x a b y Variables are letters that represent unknown values. How did I**

What do I represent? How did I get here? What am I? x a I am so unknown b y Variables are letters that represent unknown values.

4
**Numerical Expressions**

Numerical expressions include numbers and operation symbols.

5
**n Algebraic Expressions An algebraic expression includes: Numbers**

Operations and Variables n

**Algebraic expressions like phrases in English are incomplete. **

Equations Algebraic expressions like phrases in English are incomplete. An equation, like a sentence, is complete. You will notice the inclusion of a very special symbol. An equation is made up of numbers, variables, and an equal sign. 3b + 5 = 26

9
**Rewrite these verbal expressions as algebraic expressions.**

1. the sum of s and 12 s+12 2. the product of 15 and some number 15n 3. n to the seventh power n7 4. 56 increased by twice a number 56+2a 5. Four less than a number n-4

10
**Let’s write equations for these sentences.**

1. Forty-three less than n is equal to 35. n – 43 = 35 2. Seven more than y is 13. y + 7 = 13
