In the most general sense, "simplify" means to replace an expression with an equivalent expression that is simpler. For example, 2x + 3x can be simplified as 5x (using the distributive property); x5x7 can be simplified as x12 (you may add exponents if the base is the same), etc.

No. You need at least four.

Write the general algebraic expression for each using matchstick?

6 x 53 = 6(50 + 3) = (6 x 50) + (6 x 3) = 300 + 18 = 318

If you replace variables in an expression by numbers (in case there are any variables) and then do the indicated operations, you get a number. That final number is the "value" of the expression.

It is: 4(x+y+z)

The answer depends on what the starting expression is. It is not easy to generate an equivalent expression for trigonometric functions, for example, without using an infinite series of exponents.

An expression equal to 15 + 35, using distributive property, is 5(3 + 7). Under distributive property, 5*3=15 and 5*7=35.

4+m

5 x 7

the distributive property is only used when simplifying expressions or solving an equation: to write an expression just translate the question into symbols and letters - you don't need to use the distributive property or any other property for that

86 = 2 x 43

(21 x 2) + (25 x 2) = 46 x 2 = 92
