Simplify math expressions?

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!

What does algebrac expression mean?

An algebraic expression is a way of recording or communicating a general idea or quantity. For example, if we want to say how many gloves we need in order to to give gloves to five people, that's 2 x 5 gloves = 10, but if we want to say how many gloves anynumber of people need, we say it's two times the number of people. This is an algebraic expression. It doesn't specify how many people there are. A more usual algebraic way of writing the number of gloves needed would be 2p, where p stands for the number of people. 2p means 2 x p. We don't usually bother to write the multiplication sign.

How would you equate equations with exponents to zero?

I am not entirely sure what kind of equation you want to solve. Anyway, if an expression has an exponent of zero, the entire expression is usually equal to 1 (unless you raise zero to the power zero; that's undefined). Perhaps that can help you simplify the expression. For example: if you have an equation such as (x+y+z)0 + 5x + 3 = 10 The entire left expression, (x+y+z)0 can be replaced with 1, thus simplifying the equation.
