## FAQs on Understanding: Algebraic Expressions Video Lecture - Mathematics (Maths) Class 6

 1. What is an algebraic expression?
An algebraic expression is a combination of variables, constants, and arithmetic operations such as addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. It does not contain an equal sign and can include terms and coefficients.
 2. How do you simplify algebraic expressions?
To simplify an algebraic expression, you combine like terms by adding or subtracting them. This involves combining terms that have the same variable(s) raised to the same exponent(s). You can also use the distributive property to simplify expressions by multiplying terms within parentheses.
 3. What is the difference between an equation and an algebraic expression?
An algebraic expression is a mathematical phrase that contains variables, constants, and operations, but it does not have an equal sign. On the other hand, an equation is a statement that asserts the equality of two algebraic expressions using an equal sign. Equations have solutions, while expressions can be simplified or evaluated.
 4. How do you evaluate an algebraic expression?
To evaluate an algebraic expression, you substitute specific values for the variables and then perform the arithmetic operations. Simply replace each variable with the given value and simplify the expression according to the order of operations (PEMDAS). The result will be a numerical value.
 5. Can you give an example of an algebraic expression?
Certainly! An example of an algebraic expression is 3x + 2y - 5, where x and y are variables. This expression combines terms with coefficients 3 and 2, as well as variables x and y, using addition and subtraction operations.
