What is algebraic expression and linear equation ?

Algebraic expression:

An algebraic expression is an expression built from integer constants, variables, and algebraic operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication, division).

For example,

$3x^2 − 8xyz + d$ is an algebraic expression. Units of algebraic expression are called algebraic terms.

Linear equation :

A linear expression is an algebraic expression whose maximum degree or power of variables is one.

For example,

$ax + b, 7x + 9y$ and so on

A linear equation is a linear expression with an equality sign. A linear equation is an algebraic equation in which each term has an exponent of one and the graphing of the equation results in a straight line.

An example of a linear equation is $y=mx + b, 4x + 3y -7 = 0$.
