**1.2 Algebraic Expressions 8/23/13**

2
**x3 Vocabulary Variable: A letter used to represent one or more numbers**

Exponent: The number or variable that represents the number of times the base of a power is used as a factor Power: An expression that represents repeated multiplication of the same factor Base: The number used as a factor in a repeated multiplication x3

**What’s the difference? Example 1 – 2 • = ( ) – 16 = – ) 4 ( 2 – • ( 2**

Evaluate Powers a. – 24 2 • = ( ) – Multiply 2 to itself 4 times 16 = – Make the answer negative. b. ) 4 ( 2 – • ( 2 – ) = Multiply -2 to itself 4 times. = 16 What’s the difference? 3

**1. 43 ) 2 ( 3 – 3. 33 – – 21 Checkpoint Evaluate Powers**

Evaluate the power. 1. 43 ANSWER 64 2. ) 2 ( 3 – ANSWER 9 3. 33 – ANSWER 27 – 4. 21 ANSWER 2 4

5
Order of Operations Step 1: Perform operations that occur within grouping symbols. Brackets [ ] Parenthesis ( ) Step 2: Evaluate powers (exponents). Step 3: Perform multiplications and divisions from left to right . Step 4: Perform additions and subtractions from left to right.

**Example 2 36 ÷ 4 • ( – 1 + 4 )2 = 4 36 ÷ • 32 = 4 36 ÷ • 9 = 9 • = 81**

Use Order of Operations 36 ÷ 4 • ( – 1 + 4 )2 Evaluate what’s in ( ). = 4 36 ÷ • 32 Evaluate power. = 4 36 ÷ • 9 Divide. = 9 • = 81 Multiply. 6

**Example 3 ( ) 5 + x 2 7x – = ( ) 5 + x 2 7x – 4 7 = – ( 4 7 ) 9 2 28**

Evaluate an Algebraic Expression Evaluate when x = 4. ( ) 5 + x 2 7x – Evaluate means to calculate the value of. SOLUTION Substitute 4 for x. = ( ) 5 + x 2 7x – 4 7 = – ( 4 7 ) 9 2 Evaluate what’s in ( ). 28 18 = Multiply. – = Subtract. 10 – 7

**[ ] Example 4 4p2 – ( 2p ) 9 = ( 4 4p2 – 2p ) 9 3 )2 2 51 =**

Evaluate an Algebraic Expression Evaluate when p = - 3. 4p2 – ( 2p ) 9 SOLUTION Substitute - 3 for p. = ( 4 4p2 – 2p ) 9 3 )2 [ ] 2 =4 9 − −6−9 =36−(−15) 51 = 8
