You solve algebraic expressions by getting the variable by itself.

I could help when you are dealing wit a hidden variable and will help solve the question. The expression has no answer so it shows the work.

That simplifies to 3x - 9y. It can't be solved since it doesn't equal anything.

If we are talking about the algebraic expressions, then an expression can be simplified or be evaluated for specific values of its variables, while an equation need to be solved, in other words to find the values of the variables that make the equation a true statement. If we are solving an equation, then we can work in the same way that we can simplify an expression (since an equation is a statement that states that two expressions are equal), or factoring an expression.

An equation or an inequality can be solved but an expression cannot be solved.

In many cases you can simplify an algebraic expression. You don't really "solve" them; an equation can be solved. An equation is a declaration that two expressions are equal, for example, x + 3 = 10.

Rational expressions are fractions and are therefore undefined if the denominator is zero; the domain of a rational function is all real numbers except those that make the denominator of the related rational expression equal to 0. If a denominator contains variables, set it equal to zero and solve.

It is: 1.50p+2.50p+3p = 7p when simplified

You do not "solve" rational numbers. Rational numbers are not a puzzle nor a question nor an equation, so there is nothing to solve. The question is like asking how do you solve a person's name.

Expressions are just expressions. Art is an expression and no one can "solve" art. You need problems to solve. In algebra, you'll most likely be looking for equations to solve. Generally you are looking for a simple way to express a variable or to equate the variable to a number. This can be done using what are called "algebraic manipulations". Usually this involves just adding, subtracting, multiplying or dividing each side of an equation (an expression need not have "sides"), however there are many, many different operations than these. wow does that suck....the answer is Elmo

In the same way that you would solve equations because equivalent expressions are in effect equations

an algebraic expression.
