Simplifying Algerbraic Expressions - Practice Problems
Now that you've studied the three detailed examples for Simplfying Algebraic Expressions, you are ready to try some on your own! If you haven't studied this lesson yet, click here. Be very careful as you simplify your terms and make sure that you always take the sign in front of the term as you move things around!
Simplify each expression to lowest terms.
If your answers do not match the answer key below, watch the videos above for step by step solutions.
1. 2a - 4b +3ab -5a +2b
2. 4(2x+1) - 3x
3. 4(p - 5) +3(p +1)
4. 6(p +3q) - (7 +4q)
5. 4rs -2s - 3(rs +1) - 2s
1. -3a - 2b + 3ab
2. 5x + 4
3. 7p - 17
4. 6p + 14q - 7
5. rs - 4s - 3So... how did you do? Are you ready to move onto the next unit, Solving Equations?
