The Basics and Background Information
• An expression is a name for a number.
• An expression that contains a variable is a variable expression.
• An expression that contains only numbers is a numerical expression.
• A verbal expression is a word phrase (e.g., “the sum of two consecutive integers”).
• A verbal sentence is a complete word statement (e.g., “The sum of two consecutive integers is five.”).
• An algebraic expression is a variable expression that contains at least one variable (e.g., 2x – 5).
• An algebraic equation is a mathematical statement that says that two expressions are equal (e.g., 2x + 1 = 5).
• An expression that contains a variable is a variable expression.
