Math equations have an equals sign such as: 7+5=12 or 9x6=47+7 Math expressions do not have a equals sign such as: 43-27 or 8x40

If it doesn't have an equals sign or inequality relationship it is a relation. y=3 is an equality. 3x+5 is an expression.

They are the same except equations use the equal sign =

it is basically an equation without an equals sign. usually has a variable in it.

I think you mean this as an answer, not a question. An expression does not have an equals sign (e.g 2x4). An equation does have an equals sign (e.g 2x4=8).
