# How do you evaluate the expression?

## How do you evaluate the expression?

To evaluate an algebraic expression means to find the value of the expression when the variable is replaced by a given number. To evaluate an expression, we substitute the given number for the variable in the expression and then simplify the expression using the order of operations.

### What is the definition of evaluating an expression?

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.

Does evaluate the expression mean simplify?

“Evaluation” mostly means “simplifying an expression down to a single numerical value”. Sometimes you will be given a numerical expression, wher all you have to do is simplify; that is more of an order-of-operations kind of question.

What is the value of expression?

The value of a mathematical expression is the result of the computation described by this expression when the variables and constants in it are assigned values. The value of a function, given the value(s) assigned to its argument(s), is the quantity assumed by the function for these argument values.

## What does it mean to evaluate an integer expression?

Evaluate Variable Expressions with Integers Remember that to evaluate an expression means to substitute a number for the variable in the expression. Now we can use negative numbers as well as positive numbers when evaluating expressions.

### What does it mean to simplify an algebraic expression?

Simplifying an expression is just another way to say solving a math problem. When you simplify an expression, you’re basically trying to write it in the simplest way possible. At the end, there shouldn’t be any more adding, subtracting, multiplying, or dividing left to do.
