In many ways. It really depends on the algebraic expression. If several terms are added/subtracted, you can usually combine similar terms (terms that have the same combination of variables). If variables are multiplied, you can combine the same variable, adding the corresponding exponents. Sometimes expressions get simpler if you factor them; sometimes you have to multiply out (in other words, the opposite of factoring). Quite frequently, you have to use a combination of methods to simplify expressions. Take an algebra book, and look at some of the examples.
