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.

Variable is any letter used in an algebraic expression, and can vary (change form) to be any number, and one variable means the same number in any single algebraic expression. Usually algebra is simplifying the expression or equation until you know what the variable is equal to.

n/6 + 3

It is simply: x-1

(1/6)X X = number or alternatively, x/6

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.

A rational algebraic expression is the ratio of two algebraic expressions. That is, one algebraic expression divided by another. It is important that the domain is defined in such a way the the rational expression does not involve division by 0.

An algebraic expression contains one or more letters that stand for [numeric] variables.
