Copy

you test it by giving the letters a value

say if X equals 5 and Y equals 7

then you calculate both expressions with that value.

If both answers are the same, then the simplified expression is correct, or an equivalent.

What does 1 plus cosx?

That can't be simplified. If you have a value for x, you can calculate the expression. Be sure to put your calculator into the correct mode; the angle can be measured either in radians or degrees. You have to know what measurement is being used, but if the angle is written as "x", radians are commonly used.That can't be simplified. If you have a value for x, you can calculate the expression.

What is the answer to this equation -6 n -30?

Just to get you straight, that is actually an expression. Equations have equal signs in them. Just so you know. Anyway, it just so happens that this expression (-6n - 30) is already simplified. There are no like terms to combine there, since 30 does not have an "n".
