Algebra basics (ASL)
Writing expressions with variables
To write simple algebraic expressions from mathematical statements, you can follow this procedure: 1. Identify the key terms in the written statement (e.g. "sum," "product," "quantity"). 2. Break the statement down into its component parts. 3. Translate each part into algebraic form, using the appropriate symbols and operations. 4. Simplify the expression if needed. Created by Sal Khan.
