Algebraic Expressions Formula

In algebra, we substitute letters from numbers. The algebraic formulas are used to make calculations easier. To find a solution to the algebraic equation, we follow a process of finding a number or a set of numbers where, if they are substituted for the variables in the equation, reduce it to identity. And the numbers are called as Zeroes.

Formulas of Algebraic Expressions

  • (p+q)2 = p2 + q2 + 2pq
  • (p – q)2 = p2 + q2 -2pq
  • (p + q) (p – q) = p2 – q2

There are other algebra formulas too apart from these basic ones.
