Expressions are: General little statements that DO NOT have an equal sign: 2x-4 2m^3+5 Seven less than half a number squared Twice the difference of a number and five. Equations are: Any statement that DOES have an equals sign(or equivalent): 4n+7=11 1/2 b-2=3 Twice a number increased by four is ten The difference of a number and two is five Equations and expressions are similar because they both have a value. Equations and expressions are different because a equation is on sentence, and an expression is a phrase. An equation has a relation symbol, and a equation has no relation symbol. Example for equation: 1. 10 is five less than a number. 10=x-5. 2. A number is less than five. x<5. Example for expression: 1. A number less than five. x. 2. Five less than a number. x-5.
