Basic Of Algebra

Algebra is based on the concept of values that are unknown which are called variables. Basics of Algebra cover simple operation of mathematics like addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division involving both constant as well as variables. This introduces an important algebraic concept known as equations. The equation can be thought of as a scale where the weights are balanced through numbers or constants.

Algebra - Basics Of Algebra

You can find the detail about some basics things in algebra like types of equations, expressions involving one variable or two variables in Byju’s, the learning app.

Terms related to basic algebra skills are mentioned below.

  1. Exponent
  2. Expression
  3. Polynomial (Monomial, binomial and trinomial)
  4. Like terms and Unlike terms
  5. Constants

An equation is a statement which implies two same identities separated by “=” sign. Whereas an expression is a group of different terms separated by ‘+’ or ‘-‘ sign.

Like terms are those terms whose variables and their exponents are same.
