What are Algebra Expressions?

An algebraic expression is an expression that contains one or more algebraic terms.

It can include variables, constants, and operating symbols, such as plus and minus signs. An algebraic expression doesn't include an equal sign. If there is an equal sign it would become an algebraic equation and not an algebraic expression.

An algebraic expression is a combination of integer constants, variables, exponents, and operations such as addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. 7xy, 6x +5y, 2x-11, are examples of algebraic expression. A variable is a letter used to represent an unknown value.

If an expression contains only numbers it is a numerical expression like $5 \times 6 + \frac{7}{8} - 9 \times 0 +\frac{4}{6}.$

If an expression contains variables, constants, exponents, operations like $+, -, \times \space and \space \div$ then only it is an algebraic expression.
