1 TEKS 1.2 a.1, a.2, 2A.2.A, A.4.B Evaluate and Simplify Algebraic Expressions Before You studied properties of real numbers. Now You will evaluate and simplify expressions involving real numbers. Why? So you can estimate calorie use, as in Ex. 60. Key Vocabulary power variable term coefficient identity A numerical expression consists of numbers, operations, and grouping symbols. An expression formed by repeated multiplication of the same factor is a power. A power has two parts: an exponent and a base. The exponent represents the number of times the base is used as a factor. In the power shown below, the base 7 is used as a factor 3 times. exponent base p 7 p 7 power You do not usually write the exponent when it is 1. For instance, you can write 8 1 simply as 8. E XAMPLE 1 Evaluate powers a. (25) 4 5 (25) p (25) p (25) p (25) b (5 p 5 p 5 p 5) In Example 1, notice how parentheses are used in part (a) to indicate that the base is 25. In part (b), the base of the power is 5, not 25. An order of operations helps avoid confusion when evaluating expressions. KEY CONCEPT For Your Notebook Order of Operations Steps Example STEP 1 First, do operations that occur within grouping symbols p (5 2 3) STEP 2 Next, evaluate powers p 2 STEP 3 STEP 4 Then, do multiplications and divisions from left to right. Finally, do additions and subtractions from left to right p Chapter 1 Equations and Inequalities

2 VARIABLES Avariable is a letter that is used to represent one or more numbers. An expression involving variables is called an algebraic expression. When you substitute a number for each variable in an algebraic expression and simplify, you are evaluating the algebraic expression. E XAMPLE 2 Evaluate an algebraic expression Evaluate 24x 2 2 6x 1 11 when x x 2 2 6x (23) 2 2 6(23) 1 11 Substitute 23 for x. 524(9) 2 6(23) 1 11 Evaluate power Multiply. 527 Add. at classzone.com E XAMPLE 3 Use a verbal model to solve a problem CRAFT FAIR You are selling homemade candles at a craft fair for \$3 each. You spend \$120 to rent the booth and buy materials for the candles. Write an expression that shows your profit from selling c candles. Find your profit if you sell 75 candles. Solution STEP 1 Write a verbal model. Then write an algebraic expression. Use the fact that profit is the difference between income and expenses. Price per candle (dollars/candle) p Number of candles sold (candles) 2 Expenses (dollars) 3 p c An expression that shows your profit is 3c STEP 2 Evaluate the expression in Step 1 when c c (75) Substitute 75 for c Multiply Subtract. c Your profit is \$105. GUIDED PRACTICE for Examples 1, 2, and 3 Evaluate the expression (22) x(x 2 2) when x y 2 2 4y when y (z 1 3) 3 when z WHAT IF? In Example 3, find your profit if you sell 135 candles. 1.2 Evaluate and Simplify Algebraic Expressions 11

3 KEY CONCEPT For Your Notebook Terms and Coefficients In an expression that can be written as a sum, the parts added together are called terms. A term that has a variable part is called a variable term. A term that has no variable part is called a constant term. When a term is a product of a number and a power of a variable, the number is called the coefficient of the power. variable terms constant term 3x 2 1 5x 1 (27) coefficients SIMPLIFYING An expression is simplified if it contains no grouping symbols and all like terms are combined. Like terms are terms that have the same variable parts. (Constant terms are also considered like terms.) The distributive property allows you to combine like terms by adding coefficients. E XAMPLE 4 Simplify by combining like terms a. 8x 1 3x 5 (8 1 3)x Distributive property 5 11x Add coefficients. AVOID ERRORS The terms 3p 2 and p are not like terms. They use the same variable but different exponents, so the terms cannot be combined. b. 5p 2 1 p 2 2p 2 5 (5p 2 2 2p 2 ) 1 p Group like terms. 5 3p 2 1 p Combine like terms. c. 3(y 1 2) 2 4(y 2 7) 5 3y y 1 28 Distributive property 5 (3y 2 4y) 1 (6 1 28) Group like terms. 52y 1 34 Combine like terms. d. 2x 2 3y 2 9x 1 y 5 (2x 2 9x) 1 (23y 1 y) Group like terms. 527x 2 2y Combine like terms. IDENTITIES Two algebraic expressions are equivalent expressions if they have the same value for all values of their variable(s). For instance, in part (a) of Example 4, the expressions 8x 1 3x and 11x are equivalent. A statement such as 8x 1 3x 5 11x that equates two equivalent expressions is called an identity. GUIDED PRACTICE for Example 4 8. Identify the terms, coefficients, like terms, and constant terms in the expression 2 1 5x 2 6x 2 1 7x 2 3. Then simplify the expression. Simplify the expression m 2 9m 10. 2n n p 3 1 5p 2 2 p q 2 1 q 2 7q 2 5q (x 2 3) 2 2(x 1 6) y 2 x 1 10x 1 y 12 Chapter 1 Equations and Inequalities

4 E XAMPLE 5 Simplify a mathematical model DIGITAL PHOTO PRINTING You send 15 digital images to a printing service that charges \$.80 per print in large format and \$.20 per print in small format. Write and simplify an expression that represents the total cost if n of the 15 prints are in large format. Then find the total cost if 5 of the 15 prints are in large format. Solution Write a verbal model. Then write an algebraic expression. Price of large print (dollars/print) p Number of large prints (prints) 1 Price of small print (dollars/print) p Number of small prints (prints) INTERPRET EXPRESSIONS The total number of prints is 15, so if n are in large format, then 15 2 n are in small format. 0.8 p n p (15 2 n) An expression for the total cost is 0.8n 1 0.2(15 2 n). 0.8n 1 0.2(15 2 n) 5 0.8n n Distributive property 5 (0.8n 2 0.2n) 1 3 Group like terms n 1 3 Combine like terms. c When n 5 5, the total cost is 0.6(5) \$6.
