5 Lesson Topics: Vriles nd lgeric epressions; Evlution of lgeric epressions. Vriles nd lgeric epressions s smolic representtions of numers Suppose tht ou thought of numer ut ou did not tell me wht it ws. I cn think out our numer s numer. The smol is n emple of vrile. Vrile A vrile is smol tht represents n unknown numer. The choice of the nme of vrile is ritrr. One cn s well cll it n, m or. We tret vriles s if the were numers. We cn, for emple, dd numers to vriles: m, or sutrct other vriles from them: m. We cn multipl them: m ; divide: ; rise to n m given power: m ; nd then, if we wish, dd ll of the epressions together: resulting epressions re clled lgeric epressions. m m. The m Algeric Epression An lgeric epression is numer, vrile or comintion of the two connected some mthemticl opertions like ddition, sutrction, multipliction, division, or eponentition. Notice tht numers nd vriles re lso emples of lgeric epressions. We cn refer to,, or s lgeric epressions. Just like,, or re numers (written in complicted w, ut numers), lgeric epressions m, or n re smolic representtions of numers. Both vriles nd lgeric epressions cn e thought of s unknown numers. Correct lnguge nd conventions used when forming lgeric epressions Algeric epressions re red using the sme terminolog s in rithmetic. For emple, A cn e red s A plus or the sum of A nd ; cn e red s rised to the second power or squred ; is red minus or the opposite of. The following convention is commonl dopted to indicte multipliction of numer nd vrile, or multipliction of vriles. To denote the opertion of multipliction, the sign of multipliction etween numer nd vrile or etween two vriles or epressions does not hve to e eplicitl displed, so for emple, A mens times A mens times, (+) mens times the quntit +

6 According to the ove convention the following is true. = = Although, it is customr to write insted of (just like n time we wnt to write, we just write not ). The following is lso true. = = Agin, it is customr to write insted of. When forming lgeric epressions, we plce prentheses ccording to the nottionl convention dopted in rithmetic. An time two opertion signs re net to ech other, prentheses re needed. For emple, we write: we do not write: ( ), ( ) ( ) Likewise, when multipling nd, we write ( ). The prentheses re needed even if the multipliction sign is not eplicitl displed. Notice tht if the prentheses re omitted, the epression chnges its mening from multipliction of nd to sutrction. Eponents pertin onl to the closest epression. You might, for emple, recll tht to indicte tht the entire frction is rised to given power, we use prentheses. We write. Similrl, whenever ou eponentite n lgeric epression tht is not represented single smol, ou must use prentheses:, do not require prentheses., ( ), Emple. How re the following epressions red? ) ) z c) m d) e) f) ( ). On the other hnd ) rised to the second power or squred ) times z, or the product of nd z, or multiplied z c) rised to the third power or cued d) rised to the m-th power,

7 e) minus or the opposite of f) divided or the quotient of nd Emple. In the following epressions prentheses re needed. Eplin wh the re needed. n ) ( c) ) ( ) ) An time two opertion signs re net to ech other, prentheses re needed. In this cse the sign is followed sign. ) Without the prentheses, onl would e rised to the n th power. With prentheses, we rise to the n-th power. The two sttements hve different mening, thus prentheses re needed. Algeric epressions llow us to epress mthemticl ides in generl form Algeric epressions llow us to write mthemticl ides in smols, without using specific numers. For emple, the re of squre is equl to the squre of the length of its side. Not ever squre is going to hve the sme size, so we use vrile to represent the length of side. If we denote s to e side of squre, then the re of the squre cn e epressed s s s s Emple. Let nd denote two different numers. Epress the following sttements using lgeric smols. ) The sum of nd ) The difference etween nd c) The product of nd d) The quotient of nd ) ) c) d) or equivlentl Emple. Find the lgeric epressions representing the opposite of the following epressions. Do not simplif. ) ) Recll tht to find the opposite of numer, we must multipl the numer, thus ) The opposite of is ) The opposite of is ( ) ( ). Plese, notice tht since the minus sign is directl followed nother minus sign, the prentheses re needed.

8 Emple. Use the letter to represent numer nd write the following sttements s lgeric epressions. ) Doule numer ) Two thirds of numer c) A quntit incresed ) ) c) Emple.6 Write the following sttements s lgeric epressions. ) sutrcted from A ) dded to A c) multiplied d) rised to the siteenth power ) A Notice the reversed order of vriles (if ou were sked to sutrct from 6, ou would write 6, similrl we write A ). ) ( A) Notice the use of prentheses: plus sign, followed minus sign, requires prentheses. c) ( )( ) or ( ) Notice the use of prentheses. A multipliction sign (even if not eplicitl displed), followed minus sign, requires prentheses. 6 d) Prentheses re needed to indicte tht the entire epression is rised to the siteenth power. Evlution of lgeric epressions As mentioned, we cn use vriles nd lgeric epressions to descrie certin quntittive reltionships without informtion out their specific vlues. For emple, suppose tht in certin store, cke costs dollrs. Let e vrile tht represents the numer of ckes we pln to u in tht store. To clculte how much we will p for such purchse, we multipl the price of one cke, dollrs, the numer of ckes we u,. Thus, we cn epress the cost s. The lgeric epression represents the cost of ckes ought t dollrs ech. From now on, n time we know the numer of ckes we wish to u, i.e. we know the vlue of, we cn find the price evluting the epression. To Evlute n Epression To evlute n lgeric epression mens to find its vlue once we know the vlues of its vriles. Ech vrile hs to e replced its vlue nd the resulting numericl epression hs to e clculted. 6

9 For emple, Evlute when 0 (in the ove emple it would men finding the price of 0 ckes t dollrs ech). 0 0 (The price of 0 ckes is 0 dollrs.) Notice, tht wht we did ws to sustitute 0 for in the epression. We could do tht ecuse is equl to 0. The following fundmentl principle underlies the process of evlution. If two quntities re equl, ou cn lws sustitute one for the other. Equls cn e sustituted for equls Cn n lgeric epression e evluted? Let us consider evlution of when 0. If we replce its vlue 0, the opertion we would hve to perform is division 0, ut division zero is not defined, so cnnot e evluted if 0. Epressions like, or 0 re undefined. 0 Emple.7 Rewrite ech epression replcing vriles with their vlues nd then evlute, if possile. If evlution is not possile, eplin wh it is not possile. ) 6, if ) C, if C c), if n d), if n e), if nd f), if Ech vrile should e replced its ssumed vlue nd the otined numericl sentence hs to e evluted.

10 Common mistkes nd misconceptions Mistke. When, nd ou re sked to evlute, ou must e creful to write (). Do not forget to recop the minus sign efore. It is incorrect to evlute simpl writing. Mistke. One should NOT think tht lws represents negtive quntit. It depends on the vlue of. If, for emple,, then ( ). So we see tht if is negtive vlue, ctull represents positive quntit. Mistke. m When writing, do NOT plce m t the sme level s ut slightl higher. Otherwise, ecomes m. These two epressions hve different menings. Mistke. The epression is NOT red s two or two. Insted, red it s rised to the second power or squred. m Eercises with Answers (For nswers see Appendi A) Eercises 0-6 will help to review sic rithmetic opertions using integers, rtionl numers (frctions), decimls.

17 Lesson Topics: Algeric epressions nd their evlutions; Order of opertions. Recll the order of opertions. The order of opertions When evluting rithmetic epressions, the order of opertions is ) Perform ll opertions in prentheses first. ) Do n work with eponents. ) Perform ll multiplictions nd divisions, working from left to right. ) Perform ll dditions nd sutrctions, working from left to right. If numericl epression includes frction r, perform ll clcultions ove nd elow the frction r efore dividing the top the ottom numer. Let e n unknown numer. If we increse the numer, the resulting numer cn e represented. Now, suppose tht fter dding, we multipl some other numer, clled, the result of the ddition. We m now write the epression ( ). Let us nlze wh we must plce prentheses round. If n lgeric epression involves more thn one mthemticl opertion, then the order of opertions is followed. Thus, if we simpl write (without using prentheses), we would onl e multipling nd, rther thn times the entire quntit. According to the order of opertions, using prentheses in ( ) indictes tht we dd to first, nd then multipl the result. Epressions nd ( ) hve entirel different menings, nd onl ( ) correctl represents the result of opertions performed in this emple. The order of opertions is used when lgeric epressions re evluted. For emple, let us evlute when. replce ech with rise to the second power 9 multipl it 8 sutrct from the result Emple. Rewrite the following epressions nd circle the rithmetic opertion together with its opernds tht hs to e performed first. Write the nme of the opertion net to our epression. ) )

According to the order of opertions, multipliction should e performed first. Thus, the nswer is: Multipl, then dd. ) There re two opertions in 8, division nd multipliction. According to the order of opertions, the should e performed s the pper reding from the left to the right. Thus, the nswer is: Divide 8 first, nd then multipl. Emple. Write the lgeric epressions representing the following ) rised to the seventh power ) sutrcted from c) 8 times the quntit d) the opposite of Prentheses must e used in ech of these emples. 7 ) ( ) We lerned tht the eponent pertins onl to the closest 7 7 epression, so if we write insted of ( ), onl would e rised to the power 7. This rule cn e viewed s consequence of the order of opertions. 7 Eponentition should e performed efore ddition, hence in, is rised to the seventh power, nd then the result is dded to. To ensure tht is first dded to, we need to use prentheses, nd onl then the sum is rised to the seventh power. ) ( ) Notice the order of epressions: sutrct from indictes tht is written first nd we sutrct from it. c) 8( ) Thnks to prentheses, we dd first, nd then multipl. d) ( ) Tking the opposite mens multipliction.

If we rewrite the sme epression ut without prentheses, we get c nd the opertion of ddition of nd is the first opertion s well (since ddition nd sutrction re lws performed in the order s the pper from the left to the right). Thus, we conclude, tht prentheses do not chnge the order of opertions in this cse. ) In the epression ( ) c the ddition of nd should e performed first, ut if we drop the prentheses the resulting epression is c nd thus we would first multipl nd c, nd then dd.

26 Lesson Topics: Equivlent lgeric epressions. Definition of equivlent lgeric epressions Suppose we wish to write s n lgeric epression numer douled. Should we write or? Becuse of the commuttive propert of multipliction, oth nswers re right. Both hve the sme mening, lthough the pper to e different. We encounter similr ide in rithmetic. The frctions nd re equivlent, which mens tht the represent the sme numer lthough the do not look the sme. Similrl, we would s tht nd re equivlent (we often s equl) nd write. Equivlent Algeric Epressions Two lgeric epressions re equivlent if, when evluted, the hve the sme vlue for ll replcements of the vriles. Suppose tht two lgeric epressions re equivlent, like the two mentioned ove, nd. Wht it mens, ccording to the definition, is tht if we choose n vlue of, let s s, nd evlute, nd then evlute, the results must e the sme. If we chnge the vlue of, for emple to, gin two results re equl ( 8, nd 8 ). No mtter wht the vlue of, the two results re lws going to e equl. Thus, to determine tht two epressions re equivlent one would hve to evlute them for ll possile sets of vlues of vriles. Since we cnnot check ll, we cnnot prove equivlence performing evlution (mke sure tht ou understnd tht even if we determine tht two epressions ssume the sme vlue for mn sets of vlues of vriles, we still cnnot clim tht the two epressions re equivlent). To prove the equivlence of lgeric epressions, some generl rules must e emploed. Terms nd fctors In rithmetic, we often refer to numers tht re eing dded s terms, nd to numers multiplied s fctors. For emple, nd re terms of ddition 7, while nd re clled fctors of, since. We will now generlize the notions of terms nd fctors. Terms Algeric epressions tht re dded (or sutrcted) re clled terms. Ech sign, + or, is prt of the term tht follows the sign. In other words, the ddition nd sutrction signs rek the epression into smller prts, clled terms, nd so, in there re three terms:,,. Notice tht ecuse is preceded minus sign, the minus sign is prt of the term:. The epressions nd re terms in. d d Some epressions hve just one term. For emple, oth nd hve onl one term.

27 Fctors Algeric epressions tht re multiplied re clled fctors. The epression mn hs fctors,, m, n nd n comintion of those, like m, n, nd of course, mn. In, the epressions nd re clled fctors ut,,,, re lso fctors of this epression. During our stud we will e tlking out eplicit fctors. Eplicit fctors of mn re, m nd n, i.e. the fctors tht re seprted the multipliction sign (displed or not displed) of n epression. Eplicit fctors of re nd. The epressions nd re eplicit fctors in ( )( ).

Notice tht when listing fctors, the epressions in prentheses re treted s one unsplitle epression. Alger is n strct generliztion of rithmetic, where numers re replced with vriles. The lws tht re true for numers lso hold for lgeric epressions (recll, lgeric epressions re merel smolic representtions of numers). We will discuss some of the lws in the contet of equivlent epressions. Commuttive propert of ddition: rerrnging terms results in equivlent epressions We know tht nd re oth equl to the sme numer, 8. It is ecuse the result of ddition does not depend on the order of numers tht re eing dded. This propert is clled the commuttive propert of ddition. Rememer, sutrction does not hve this propert:. But, if we view sutrction s the ddition of the opposite numer, we get ( ). With the use of vriles, we cn epress the ove ides in generl form (without the use of specific numers). For n vlue of nd,

Similrl, if n lgeric epression consists of more thn two terms, we cn rerrnge them in n order. For instnce, the terms of B C re, B, nd C. Thus, we cn rewrite the epression B C s B C or B C : B C B C B C (there re more possile rerrngements). Emple.
