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.

Mathematical phrase | Algebraic expression |

Six more than a number | x + 6 |

The difference of twelve and a number | 12 - x |

The product of a number and negative 4 | x(-4) |

A number divided by another number | x/y |

Twice a number plus three | 2x + 3 |

Two subtracted from a number | x - 2 |

An algebraic expression does not have an equal (=) sign

For example, x + 8 - y = 12 is not an algebraic expression.
