# Simplifying Algebraic Expressions Worksheet

The purpose of the Simplifying Algebraic Expressions Worksheet is to teach students that algebra is a good part of their lives. It does not have to be an uncomfortable experience for them and it certainly does not have to be a fearful one. By taking the time to prepare a worksheet that the student can use, they will be able to eliminate the anxiety that comes with making algebra calculations on their own.

The first step in preparing this worksheet is to determine which basic forms of algebraic expressions will be used in the worksheet. There are three types of terms in algebra. Each has a corresponding formula on the worksheet. In order to find the formula, simply type the terms into the appropriate cells.

Once you know which particular form of expression is being used in the worksheet, you need to also learn the different variables that the formula will use. These variables are used in the formula, such as x, x’ and a.

Another thing to do is to locate the formula on a computer to see if there is already a formula for that particular equation on the worksheet. The formulas are only different in a minor way, so the software might not be able to calculate the formula properly.

After finding the formula for the formula, the next step is to find a specific equation that you want to use. With regards to this worksheet, there are five basic equations that are used.

The first equation is used to find the specific term. This is where it is found. The second equation is used to find the x’ value and it is the general form of the variable.
