How to Simplify Algebraic Expressions?

Simplifing algebraic expressions is not as hard as it seems. If you remember the properties (distributive – combine like terms) then you should have no problem. The first thing you do is identify all the like terms (3a+2b+9a-b). The like terms are (3a+9b +2b-b= 12a-b). Notice there was not a 1b because a single letter represents one (1) term. Find the like terms, using the distributive property and solve. For more information look here:
