## Algebraic Expressions Definition

When constants and variables are combined with mathematical operator to express a mathematical terms known as algebraic expressions.

## Algebraic Expressions Example

4x2y, 7xy + 2xy2, 3x2y2 + 2xy – 5 etc. All are algebraic expressions.

## Algebraic Expressions Terms

Algebraic expression is a combination of terms and each term is the product of a constant and variables. In the example of algebraic expression 3x2y2 + 2xy – 5, 3x2y2, 2xy and -5 are algebraic expressions terms.

## Types of Algebraic Expressions Terms

In algebraic expression terms, there are two types. Like and unlike terms

### Like Terms of Algebraic Expressions

In an algebraic expression, the terms which have same literals coefficients are called like terms. For example, in the algebraic expression 3xy + 5x + 7xy – 2y + 12, 3xy and 7xy are like terms.

### Unlike Terms of Algebraic Expressions

In an algebraic expression, the terms which have not same literals coefficients are called unlike terms. For example, in the algebraic expression 3xy + 5x + 7xy – 2y + 12, 5x, -2y are unlike terms.

## Mathematical Operations of Algebraic Expressions

Like we do mathematical operations on numbers, we can also do mathematical operations on the algebraic expressions.

In the addition of the algebraic expressions, we add the like terms only and other unlike terms are kept same. For example, in the algebraic expressions (3xy + 5x) + (7xy – 2y + 12) = 10xy + 5x – 2y + 12.

### Subtraction of Algebraic Expressions

In the subtraction of the algebraic expressions, we subtract the like terms only and other unlike terms are kept same. For example, in the algebraic expressions (3xy + 5x) – (7xy – 2y + 12) = -4xy + 5x + 2y – 12.

### Multiplication of Algebraic Expressions

In the multiplication of the algebraic expressions, we multiply the numerical coefficients and multiply the literal coefficients using laws of exponents and then we add or subtract the algebraic expressions. For example, in the algebraic expressions (2x + 3)(3x + 2y – 9) = 6x2 + 4xy – 18x + 9x + 6y – 27 = 6x2 + 4xy – 9x + 6y – 27.

### Division of Algebraic Expressions

In the division of the algebraic expressions, we do the long division of the algebraic expressions same as the long division of numbers. For example, in the algebraic expressions (x2 + 12x + 35)/(x + 5) = (x + 7).

## Value of an Algebraic Expressions

To find the value of an algebraic expression, substitute the given value to the variables in the algebraic expression. The value of algebraic expression depends on the different value of the variables. For example, we need to find the value of 3x2 + 4 at x = 1. We put x = 1 in 3x2 + 4. Thus, we get 3(1)2 + 4 = 7.

## Polynomial

An algebraic expression of the form of anxn + an-1xn-1 + an-2xn-2 + … + a3x3 + a2x2 + a1x + a0 is called as polynomial, where n is non-negative integers and an, an-1, an-2, …,a2, a1, a0 all are real numbers known as coefficient of algebraic expression terms. The algebraic expression 3x3 + 4x2 – 5x + 8 is a polynomial.

## Degrees of Polynomial

In a polynomial anxn + an-1xn-1 + an-2xn-2 + … + a3x3 + a2x2 + a1x + a0, the highest exponent of a term is known as the degree of the polynomial. In the polynomial 3x3 + 4x2 – 5x + 8, the highest exponent is 3. Thus, the degree of the polynomial is 3.

## Types of Polynomial

A polynomial is categories on the basis of number of terms and degrees of the polynomial.

## Types of Polynomial On The Basis of Number of Terms

The algebraic expression containing one term is a MONOMIAL. For example, 3x3 is a monomial.

The algebraic expression containing two unlike terms is a BINOMIAL. For example, 3x3 + 3x2 is a binomial.

The algebraic expression containing three unlike terms is a TRINOMIAL. For example, 3x3 + 3x2 + 6 is a trinomial.

The algebraic expression containing more than three unlike terms is a POLYNOMIAL. For example, 3x3 + 3x2 + 6x + 9 is a polynomial.

## Types of Polynomial On The Basis of Degrees

The polynomial with degree 1 is a known as linear polynomial. Its general form is (ax + b). For example, 3x + 5 is a linear polynomial.

The polynomial with degree 2 is a known as quadratic polynomial. Its general form is (ax2 + bx + c). For example, 3x2 + 6x + 5 is a quadratic polynomial.

The polynomial with degree 3 is a known as cubic polynomial. Its general form is (ax3 + bx2 + cx + d). For example, 5x3 + 3x2 + 6x + 5 is a cubic polynomial.

The polynomial with degree 4 is a known as bi-quadratic polynomial. Its general form is (ax4 + bx3 + cx2 + dx + e). For example, 7x4 – 5x3 + 3x2 + 6x + 5 is a bi-quadratic polynomial.

The polynomial with degree 5 or more than 5 is a known as polynomial with degree 5 or more. For example, 6x5 – 7x4 – 5x3 + 3x2 + 6x + 5 is a polynomial with degree 5. The general form of n degree polynomial is (anxn + an-1xn-1 + an-2xn-2 + … + a3x3 + a2x2 + a1x + a0).

## Constant Polynomial

The polynomial with the constant term is known as constant polynomial. The degree of a constant polynomial is zero. For example: p(x) = 6 is a constant polynomial.

## Zero Polynomial

If a= an-1 = an-2= … = a= a= a= a0 = 0 in the polynomial anxn + an-1xn-1 + an-2xn-2 + … + a3x3 + a2x2 + a1x + a0, then it is called as zero polynomial. The degree of the zero polynomial is not defined. The polynomial p(x) = 0 is a zero polynomial.

## Zeroes/Roots of Polynomial

The number or numerical value for which the value of a polynomial is zero is called zero/roots of the polynomial. For example: If we put x = 1 in the polynomial x2 – 4x + 3, we get 1 – 4 + 3 = 0. Thus, x = 1 is a zero or roots of the polynomial x2 – 4x + 3.

## Algebraic Identities or Algebraic Formulas

An algebraic identities or algebraic formula is special product of two or more algebraic expressions. There are following algebraic identities.

### Algebraic Identities 1

(x + a)(x + b) = x2 + (a + b)x + ab
