Imagine it’s your best friend’s birthday and he/she hosts a party which is at 7 PM. The venue is just 10 minutes away from your place so you leave at 6.50 PM, and you suddenly get caught in traffic near the signal. Now you know a shortcut to reach the venue faster but you can’t move until the signal’s clear and you don’t know how much longer will it take. So how do you calculate the time for the signal to go green? What do you use? Well, we use algebra and algebraic expressions. But what are these terms? Let us study them.

**FAQs on Algebraic Expression**

**Question 1: Explain algebraic expression?**

**Answer:**In algebra, expression that is made up of the variables, integer constants, and the allergic operations (addition, multiplication, subtraction, division, and exponentiation by an exponent that is a rational number) is known as an algebraic expression. For instance, 5x^{2} + 4xy + z is an algebraic expression.

**Question 2: What are the different types of algebraic expressions and explain monomials?**

**Answer:** Generally we can distinguish algebraic expression in five categories namely: monomials, binomials, polynomials, trinomials, and multinomial. Besides, monomial refers to an algebraic expression that consists of one non-zero term such as a, which is a monomial in one variable, in the same way, 5ab^{2} is a monomial in two variable and so on.

**Question 3: What are the terms in an expression?**

**Answer: **Term refers to a signed number, a constant multiplied by a variable, or a variable. Moreover, over each term in an algebraic expression is separated by a + sign or a J sign.

**Question 4: What is a simplified expression?**

**Answer:** In algebra, it refers to an expression that has been condensed and shortened, so that all the like terms have been combined. In simple words, it is an expression in which like terms have been combined and shortened.
