  • Simplify algebraic expressions.

It is often said that mathematics is the language of science. If this is true, then an essential part of the language of mathematics is numbers. The earliest use of numbers occurred 100 centuries ago in the Middle East to count, or enumerate items. Farmers, cattle herders, and traders used tokens, stones, or markers to signify a single quantity—a sheaf of grain, a head of livestock, or a fixed length of cloth, for example. Doing so made commerce possible, leading to improved communications and the spread of civilization.

Three to four thousand years ago, Egyptians introduced fractions. They first used them to show reciprocals. Later, they used them to represent the amount when a quantity was divided into equal parts.

But what if there were no cattle to trade or an entire crop of grain was lost in a flood? How could someone indicate the existence of nothing? From earliest times, people had thought of a “base state” while counting and used various symbols to represent this null condition. However, it was not until about the fifth century CE in India that zero was added to the number system and used as a numeral in calculations.

Clearly, there was also a need for numbers to represent loss or debt. In India, in the seventh century CE, negative numbers were used as solutions to mathematical equations and commercial debts. The opposites of the counting numbers expanded the number system even further.

Because of the evolution of the number system, we can now perform complex calculations using these and other categories of real numbers. In this section, we will explore sets of numbers, calculations with different kinds of numbers, and the use of numbers in expressions.

Classifying a Real Number

The numbers we use for counting, or enumerating items, are the natural numbers : 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and so on. We describe them in set notation as { 1 , 2 , 3 , ... } { 1 , 2 , 3 , ... } where the ellipsis (…) indicates that the numbers continue to infinity. The natural numbers are, of course, also called the counting numbers . Any time we enumerate the members of a team, count the coins in a collection, or tally the trees in a grove, we are using the set of natural numbers. The set of whole numbers is the set of natural numbers plus zero: { 0 , 1 , 2 , 3 , ... } . { 0 , 1 , 2 , 3 , ... } .

The set of integers adds the opposites of the natural numbers to the set of whole numbers: { ... , −3 , −2 , −1 , 0 , 1 , 2 , 3 , ... } . { ... , −3 , −2 , −1 , 0 , 1 , 2 , 3 , ... } . It is useful to note that the set of integers is made up of three distinct subsets: negative integers, zero, and positive integers. In this sense, the positive integers are just the natural numbers. Another way to think about it is that the natural numbers are a subset of the integers.

The set of rational numbers is written as { m n | m and  n are integers and  n ≠ 0 } . { m n | m and  n are integers and  n ≠ 0 } . Notice from the definition that rational numbers are fractions (or quotients) containing integers in both the numerator and the denominator, and the denominator is never 0. We can also see that every natural number, whole number, and integer is a rational number with a denominator of 1.

Because they are fractions, any rational number can also be expressed in decimal form. Any rational number can be represented as either:

  • ⓐ a terminating decimal: 15 8 = 1.875 , 15 8 = 1.875 , or
  • ⓑ a repeating decimal: 4 11 = 0.36363636 … = 0. 36 ¯ 4 11 = 0.36363636 … = 0. 36 ¯

We use a line drawn over the repeating block of numbers instead of writing the group multiple times.

Writing Integers as Rational Numbers

Write each of the following as a rational number.

Write a fraction with the integer in the numerator and 1 in the denominator.

  • ⓐ 7 = 7 1 7 = 7 1
  • ⓑ 0 = 0 1 0 = 0 1
  • ⓒ −8 = − 8 1 −8 = − 8 1

Identifying Rational Numbers

Write each of the following rational numbers as either a terminating or repeating decimal.

  • ⓐ − 5 7 − 5 7
  • ⓑ 15 5 15 5
  • ⓒ 13 25 13 25

Write each fraction as a decimal by dividing the numerator by the denominator.

  • ⓐ − 5 7 = −0. 714285 ——— , − 5 7 = −0. 714285 ——— , a repeating decimal
  • ⓑ 15 5 = 3 15 5 = 3 (or 3.0), a terminating decimal
  • ⓒ 13 25 = 0.52 , 13 25 = 0.52 , a terminating decimal
  • ⓐ 68 17 68 17
  • ⓑ 8 13 8 13
  • ⓒ − 17 20 − 17 20

Irrational Numbers

At some point in the ancient past, someone discovered that not all numbers are rational numbers. A builder, for instance, may have found that the diagonal of a square with unit sides was not 2 or even 3 2 , 3 2 , but was something else. Or a garment maker might have observed that the ratio of the circumference to the diameter of a roll of cloth was a little bit more than 3, but still not a rational number. Such numbers are said to be irrational because they cannot be written as fractions. These numbers make up the set of irrational numbers . Irrational numbers cannot be expressed as a fraction of two integers. It is impossible to describe this set of numbers by a single rule except to say that a number is irrational if it is not rational. So we write this as shown.

Differentiating Rational and Irrational Numbers

Determine whether each of the following numbers is rational or irrational. If it is rational, determine whether it is a terminating or repeating decimal.

  • ⓑ 33 9 33 9
  • ⓓ 17 34 17 34
  • ⓔ 0.3033033303333 … 0.3033033303333 …
  • ⓐ 25 : 25 : This can be simplified as 25 = 5. 25 = 5. Therefore, 25 25 is rational.

So, 33 9 33 9 is rational and a repeating decimal.

  • ⓒ 11 : 11 11 : 11 is irrational and cannot be simplified any further.

So, 17 34 17 34 is rational and a terminating decimal.

  • ⓔ 0.3033033303333 … 0.3033033303333 … is not a terminating decimal. Also note that there is no repeating pattern because the group of 3s increases each time. Therefore it is neither a terminating nor a repeating decimal and, hence, not a rational number. It is an irrational number.
  • ⓐ 7 77 7 77
  • ⓒ 4.27027002700027 … 4.27027002700027 …
  • ⓓ 91 13 91 13

Real Numbers

Given any number n , we know that n is either rational or irrational. It cannot be both. The sets of rational and irrational numbers together make up the set of real numbers . As we saw with integers, the real numbers can be divided into three subsets: negative real numbers, zero, and positive real numbers. Each subset includes fractions, decimals, and irrational numbers according to their algebraic sign (+ or –). Zero is considered neither positive nor negative.

The real numbers can be visualized on a horizontal number line with an arbitrary point chosen as 0, with negative numbers to the left of 0 and positive numbers to the right of 0. A fixed unit distance is then used to mark off each integer (or other basic value) on either side of 0. Any real number corresponds to a unique position on the number line.The converse is also true: Each location on the number line corresponds to exactly one real number. This is known as a one-to-one correspondence. We refer to this as the real number line as shown in Figure 1 .

Classifying Real Numbers

Classify each number as either positive or negative and as either rational or irrational. Does the number lie to the left or the right of 0 on the number line?

  • ⓐ − 10 3 − 10 3
  • ⓒ − 289 − 289
  • ⓓ −6 π −6 π
  • ⓔ 0.615384615384 … 0.615384615384 …
  • ⓐ − 10 3 − 10 3 is negative and rational. It lies to the left of 0 on the number line.
  • ⓑ 5 5 is positive and irrational. It lies to the right of 0.
  • ⓒ − 289 = − 17 2 = −17 − 289 = − 17 2 = −17 is negative and rational. It lies to the left of 0.
  • ⓓ −6 π −6 π is negative and irrational. It lies to the left of 0.
  • ⓔ 0.615384615384 … 0.615384615384 … is a repeating decimal so it is rational and positive. It lies to the right of 0.
  • ⓑ −11.411411411 … −11.411411411 …
  • ⓒ 47 19 47 19
  • ⓓ − 5 2 − 5 2
  • ⓔ 6.210735 6.210735

Sets of Numbers as Subsets

Beginning with the natural numbers, we have expanded each set to form a larger set, meaning that there is a subset relationship between the sets of numbers we have encountered so far. These relationships become more obvious when seen as a diagram, such as Figure 2 .

Sets of Numbers

The set of natural numbers includes the numbers used for counting: { 1 , 2 , 3 , ... } . { 1 , 2 , 3 , ... } .

The set of whole numbers is the set of natural numbers plus zero: { 0 , 1 , 2 , 3 , ... } . { 0 , 1 , 2 , 3 , ... } .

The set of integers adds the negative natural numbers to the set of whole numbers: { ... , −3 , −2 , −1 , 0 , 1 , 2 , 3 , ... } . { ... , −3 , −2 , −1 , 0 , 1 , 2 , 3 , ... } .

The set of rational numbers includes fractions written as { m n | m and  n are integers and  n ≠ 0 } . { m n | m and  n are integers and  n ≠ 0 } .

The set of irrational numbers is the set of numbers that are not rational, are nonrepeating, and are nonterminating: { h | h is not a rational number } . { h | h is not a rational number } .

Differentiating the Sets of Numbers

Classify each number as being a natural number ( N ), whole number ( W ), integer ( I ), rational number ( Q ), and/or irrational number ( Q′ ).

  • ⓔ 3.2121121112 … 3.2121121112 …
  • ⓐ − 35 7 − 35 7
  • ⓔ 4.763763763 … 4.763763763 …

Performing Calculations Using the Order of Operations

When we multiply a number by itself, we square it or raise it to a power of 2. For example, 4 2 = 4 ⋅ 4 = 16. 4 2 = 4 ⋅ 4 = 16. We can raise any number to any power. In general, the exponential notation a n a n means that the number or variable a a is used as a factor n n times.

In this notation, a n a n is read as the n th power of a , a , or a a to the n n where a a is called the base and n n is called the exponent . A term in exponential notation may be part of a mathematical expression, which is a combination of numbers and operations. For example, 24 + 6 ⋅ 2 3 − 4 2 24 + 6 ⋅ 2 3 − 4 2 is a mathematical expression.

To evaluate a mathematical expression, we perform the various operations. However, we do not perform them in any random order. We use the order of operations . This is a sequence of rules for evaluating such expressions.

Recall that in mathematics we use parentheses ( ), brackets [ ], and braces { } to group numbers and expressions so that anything appearing within the symbols is treated as a unit. Additionally, fraction bars, radicals, and absolute value bars are treated as grouping symbols. When evaluating a mathematical expression, begin by simplifying expressions within grouping symbols.

The next step is to address any exponents or radicals. Afterward, perform multiplication and division from left to right and finally addition and subtraction from left to right.

Let’s take a look at the expression provided.

There are no grouping symbols, so we move on to exponents or radicals. The number 4 is raised to a power of 2, so simplify 4 2 4 2 as 16.

Next, perform multiplication or division, left to right.

Lastly, perform addition or subtraction, left to right.

Therefore, 24 + 6 ⋅ 2 3 − 4 2 = 12. 24 + 6 ⋅ 2 3 − 4 2 = 12.

For some complicated expressions, several passes through the order of operations will be needed. For instance, there may be a radical expression inside parentheses that must be simplified before the parentheses are evaluated. Following the order of operations ensures that anyone simplifying the same mathematical expression will get the same result.

Order of Operations

Operations in mathematical expressions must be evaluated in a systematic order, which can be simplified using the acronym PEMDAS :

P (arentheses) E (xponents) M (ultiplication) and D (ivision) A (ddition) and S (ubtraction)

Given a mathematical expression, simplify it using the order of operations.

  • Step 1. Simplify any expressions within grouping symbols.
  • Step 2. Simplify any expressions containing exponents or radicals.
  • Step 3. Perform any multiplication and division in order, from left to right.
  • Step 4. Perform any addition and subtraction in order, from left to right.

Using the Order of Operations

Use the order of operations to evaluate each of the following expressions.

  • ⓐ ( 3 ⋅ 2 ) 2 − 4 ( 6 + 2 ) ( 3 ⋅ 2 ) 2 − 4 ( 6 + 2 )
  • ⓑ 5 2 − 4 7 − 11 − 2 5 2 − 4 7 − 11 − 2
  • ⓒ 6 − | 5 − 8 | + 3 ( 4 − 1 ) 6 − | 5 − 8 | + 3 ( 4 − 1 )
  • ⓓ 14 − 3 ⋅ 2 2 ⋅ 5 − 3 2 14 − 3 ⋅ 2 2 ⋅ 5 − 3 2
  • ⓔ 7 ( 5 ⋅ 3 ) − 2 [ ( 6 − 3 ) − 4 2 ] + 1 7 ( 5 ⋅ 3 ) − 2 [ ( 6 − 3 ) − 4 2 ] + 1
  • ⓐ ( 3 ⋅ 2 ) 2 − 4 ( 6 + 2 ) = ( 6 ) 2 − 4 ( 8 ) Simplify parentheses. = 36 − 4 ( 8 ) Simplify exponent. = 36 − 32 Simplify multiplication. = 4 Simplify subtraction.

Using Properties of Real Numbers

For some activities we perform, the order of certain operations does not matter, but the order of other operations does. For example, it does not make a difference if we put on the right shoe before the left or vice-versa. However, it does matter whether we put on shoes or socks first. The same thing is true for operations in mathematics.

Commutative Properties

The commutative property of addition states that numbers may be added in any order without affecting the sum.

We can better see this relationship when using real numbers.

Similarly, the commutative property of multiplication states that numbers may be multiplied in any order without affecting the product.

Again, consider an example with real numbers.

It is important to note that neither subtraction nor division is commutative. For example, 17 − 5 17 − 5 is not the same as 5 − 17. 5 − 17. Similarly, 20 ÷ 5 ≠ 5 ÷ 20. 20 ÷ 5 ≠ 5 ÷ 20.

Associative Properties

The associative property of multiplication tells us that it does not matter how we group numbers when multiplying. We can move the grouping symbols to make the calculation easier, and the product remains the same.

Consider this example.

The associative property of addition tells us that numbers may be grouped differently without affecting the sum.

This property can be especially helpful when dealing with negative integers. Consider this example.

Are subtraction and division associative? Review these examples.

As we can see, neither subtraction nor division is associative.

Distributive Property

The distributive property states that the product of a factor times a sum is the sum of the factor times each term in the sum.

This property combines both addition and multiplication (and is the only property to do so). Let us consider an example.

Note that 4 is outside the grouping symbols, so we distribute the 4 by multiplying it by 12, multiplying it by –7, and adding the products.

To be more precise when describing this property, we say that multiplication distributes over addition. The reverse is not true, as we can see in this example.

A special case of the distributive property occurs when a sum of terms is subtracted.

For example, consider the difference 12 − ( 5 + 3 ) . 12 − ( 5 + 3 ) . We can rewrite the difference of the two terms 12 and ( 5 + 3 ) ( 5 + 3 ) by turning the subtraction expression into addition of the opposite. So instead of subtracting ( 5 + 3 ) , ( 5 + 3 ) , we add the opposite.

Now, distribute −1 −1 and simplify the result.

This seems like a lot of trouble for a simple sum, but it illustrates a powerful result that will be useful once we introduce algebraic terms. To subtract a sum of terms, change the sign of each term and add the results. With this in mind, we can rewrite the last example.

Identity Properties

The identity property of addition states that there is a unique number, called the additive identity (0) that, when added to a number, results in the original number.

The identity property of multiplication states that there is a unique number, called the multiplicative identity (1) that, when multiplied by a number, results in the original number.

For example, we have ( −6 ) + 0 = −6 ( −6 ) + 0 = −6 and 23 ⋅ 1 = 23. 23 ⋅ 1 = 23. There are no exceptions for these properties; they work for every real number, including 0 and 1.

Inverse Properties

The inverse property of addition states that, for every real number a , there is a unique number, called the additive inverse (or opposite), denoted by (− a ), that, when added to the original number, results in the additive identity, 0.

For example, if a = −8 , a = −8 , the additive inverse is 8, since ( −8 ) + 8 = 0. ( −8 ) + 8 = 0.

The inverse property of multiplication holds for all real numbers except 0 because the reciprocal of 0 is not defined. The property states that, for every real number a , there is a unique number, called the multiplicative inverse (or reciprocal), denoted 1 a , 1 a , that, when multiplied by the original number, results in the multiplicative identity, 1.

For example, if a = − 2 3 , a = − 2 3 , the reciprocal, denoted 1 a , 1 a , is − 3 2 − 3 2 because

Evaluating Algebraic Expressions

So far, the mathematical expressions we have seen have involved real numbers only. In mathematics, we may see expressions such as x + 5 , 4 3 π r 3 , x + 5 , 4 3 π r 3 , or 2 m 3 n 2 . 2 m 3 n 2 . In the expression x + 5 , x + 5 , 5 is called a constant because it does not vary and x is called a variable because it does. (In naming the variable, ignore any exponents or radicals containing the variable.) An algebraic expression is a collection of constants and variables joined together by the algebraic operations of addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division.

We have already seen some real number examples of exponential notation, a shorthand method of writing products of the same factor. When variables are used, the constants and variables are treated the same way.

In each case, the exponent tells us how many factors of the base to use, whether the base consists of constants or variables.

Any variable in an algebraic expression may take on or be assigned different values. When that happens, the value of the algebraic expression changes. To evaluate an algebraic expression means to determine the value of the expression for a given value of each variable in the expression. Replace each variable in the expression with the given value, then simplify the resulting expression using the order of operations. If the algebraic expression contains more than one variable, replace each variable with its assigned value and simplify the expression as before.

An equation is a mathematical statement indicating that two expressions are equal. The expressions can be numerical or algebraic. The equation is not inherently true or false, but only a proposition. The values that make the equation true, the solutions, are found using the properties of real numbers and other results. For example, the equation 2 x + 1 = 7 2 x + 1 = 7 has the solution of 3 because when we substitute 3 for x x in the equation, we obtain the true statement 2 ( 3 ) + 1 = 7. 2 ( 3 ) + 1 = 7.

A formula is an equation expressing a relationship between constant and variable quantities. Very often, the equation is a means of finding the value of one quantity (often a single variable) in terms of another or other quantities. One of the most common examples is the formula for finding the area A A of a circle in terms of the radius r r of the circle: A = π r 2 . A = π r 2 . For any value of r , r , the area A A can be found by evaluating the expression π r 2 . π r 2 .

Using a Formula

A right circular cylinder with radius r r and height h h has the surface area S S (in square units) given by the formula S = 2 π r ( r + h ) . S = 2 π r ( r + h ) . See Figure 3 . Find the surface area of a cylinder with radius 6 in. and height 9 in. Leave the answer in terms of π . π .

A photograph with length L and width W is placed in a mat of width 8 centimeters (cm). The area of the mat (in square centimeters, or cm 2 ) is found to be A = ( L + 16 ) ( W + 16 ) − L ⋅ W . A = ( L + 16 ) ( W + 16 ) − L ⋅ W . See Figure 4 . Find the area of a mat for a photograph with length 32 cm and width 24 cm.

Sometimes we can simplify an algebraic expression to make it easier to evaluate or to use in some other way. To do so, we use the properties of real numbers. We can use the same properties in formulas because they contain algebraic expressions.

Our Professional Writers Are Our Pride

EssayService boasts its wide writer catalog. Our writers have various fields of study, starting with physics and ending with history. Therefore we are able to tackle a wide range of assignments coming our way, starting with the short ones such as reviews and ending with challenging tasks such as thesis papers. If you want real professionals some of which are current university professors to write your essays at an adequate price, you've come to the right place! Hiring essay writers online as a newcomer might not be the easiest thing to do. Being cautious here is important, as you don't want to end up paying money to someone who is hiring people with poor knowledge from third-world countries. You get low-quality work, company owners become financial moguls, and those working for such an essay writing service are practically enduring intellectual slavery. Our writing service, on the other hand, gives you a chance to work with a professional paper writer. We employ only native English speakers. But having good English isn't the only skill needed to ace papers, right? Therefore we require each and every paper writer to have a bachelor's, master's, or Ph.D., along with 3+ years of experience in academic writing. If the paper writer ticks these boxes, they get mock tasks, and only with their perfect completion do they proceed to the interview process.

We never disclose your personal information to any third parties

Who will write my essay?

On the website are presented exclusively professionals in their field. If a competent and experienced author worked on the creation of the text, the result is high-quality material with high uniqueness in all respects. When we are looking for a person to work, we pay attention to special parameters:

  • work experience. The longer a person works in this area, the better he understands the intricacies of writing a good essay;
  • work examples. The team of the company necessarily reviews the texts created by a specific author. According to them, we understand how professionally a person works.
  • awareness of a specific topic. It is not necessary to write a text about thrombosis for a person with a medical education, but it is worth finding out how well the performer is versed in a certain area;
  • terms of work. So that we immediately understand whether a writer can cover large volumes of orders.

Only after a detailed interview, we take people to the team. Employees will carefully select information, conduct search studies and check each proposal for errors. Clients pass anti-plagiarism quickly and get the best marks in schools and universities.

How does this work

What is a good essay writing service.

Oddly enough, but many people still have not come across a quality service. A large number of users fall for deceivers who take their money without doing their job. And some still fulfill the agreements, but very badly.

A good essay writing service should first of all provide guarantees:

  • confidentiality of personal information;
  • for the terms of work;
  • for the timely transfer of the text to the customer;
  • for the previously agreed amount of money.

The company must have a polite support service that will competently advise the client, answer all questions and support until the end of the cooperation. Also, the team must get out of conflict situations correctly.

It is necessary to have several payment methods on the site to make it easier for the client to transfer money.

And of course, only highly qualified writers with a philological education should be present in the team, who will not make spelling and punctuation errors in the text, checking all the information and not stealing it from extraneous sites.
