An algebraic expression is a mathematical phrase that can include numbers, operations symbols, and most importantly variables.
Because variables are important elements, algebraic expressions are sometimes called variables expressions.

The product of a number and negative 4 | x(-4) |
A number divided by another number | x/y |

An algebraic expression does not have an equal (=) sign
For example, x + 8 - y = 12 is not an algebraic expression.
