Numerical expressions solely include numbers, while algebraic expressions may contain a variable like x. An example of a numerical expression is 1+2 and an example of an algebraic expression is 2x+3y=0.

Numerical Expression: 1.) 20+2-8 ( Or any other number with two symbols on math ) Algebraic Expression: 2.) h x 2 ( Or any other number using only one symbol an a letter ) The difference between a numerical and algebraic expressions is that numerical expressions use only numbers, but algebraic expressions use letters as variables to represent numbers.

Algebraic expressions use letters as variables to represent numbers. Ex. 5c-(2+x) x=2 c=12 Numerical expressions use numbers only. Ex. 12+(2-7)

Numerical equations have only numbers and symbols, while algebraic equations have variables also.

algebric uses variables and numerical uses numbers

A numerical expression is an equation that contains only numbers. An algebraic expression is an equation that contains one or more variables and can also have numbers.

A numerical expression uses numbers and operations. It also has an equal sign. An algebraic expression uses variables and operations. Unlike a numerical expression it does not have an equal 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.

Numerical expression: 59-34*6 Algebraic expression: 5x-3x+2 A numerical expression is limited to only numbers and can always be simplified to one number. An algebraic expressuion uses terms, more specifically a variable like x, and a constant like 2.

An expression is used in algebraic expressions meaning (890.098)+755,634 and a equality is a term meaning equal in both ways.

Simplifying an expression is getting rid of any brackets or parentheses, performing as many operations as you can - including combining like terms. To evaluate an expression you would substitute the numerical values of all the variables, carry out all the operations (addition, multiplication etc) in the expression to reach the answer - the numerical value of the expression.

Numerical data is numbers. Non-numerical data is anything else.
