Best Answer

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


First, you do 9x+2x

Now the expression is:

now do 67+34


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

In algebraic expressions is there a solution?

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.

How are algebraic expressions and equations alike?

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.
