Best Answer

You must combine like terms. Then, if you can, simplify it further.

9x+67+34+2x+16xy

First, you do 9x+2x

Now the expression is:

11x+67+34+16xy

now do 67+34

11x+101+16xy

There is no more like terms to simplify so 11x+101+16xy is your simplified expression.

By long division. Factorisation may work but you cannot depend on that.

They can be used to simplify expressions so that the solutions can be found more easily.

In many cases you can simplify an algebraic expression. You don't really "solve" them; an equation can be solved. An equation is a declaration that two expressions are equal, for example, x + 3 = 10.

Yes, you can but it depends on the context. You can simplify fractions, or simplify surds, or algebraic expressions and in each case the simplification means different things. So if you want a sensible answer to your question I would suggest that you use a proper question rather than stick a quastion mark at the end of a phrase!

This is simply a set of algebraic expressions which has no simpler form. Perhaps there should be an equals sign somewhere.

no algebraic expressions do not have equal signs but equations do.

Algebraic expressions are terms that do not include an equality sign

Algebraic expressions are the written relations of or between variables. For example, x2, 1/x, and x + y + z are all algebraic expressions. Algebraic equations are simply algebraic expressions that equate to something. For example, x2 = 4, 1/x = y, and x + y + z = 42 are all algebraic equations. In general, one differentiates algebraic expressions from exponential, trigonometric, hyperbolic, and logarithmic expressions by requiring algebraic expressions to be confined to polynomial expressions. I've added a link regarding polynomials below.

To add and subtract algebraic expressions the simple rule of like terms applies. In your homework that asks for the expression represents the perimeter in units of this trapezoid you will need to find the like terms and simplify.
