# STEEMIT MATH CLASS | LESSON 1- INRODUCING ALGEBRA entry of @whakee

Mathematics has always been seen as one of the hardest subjects to a greater number of students at different educational level. I am grateful to @steemkidsedu for this opportunity to be taught mathematics by @whileponderin a teacher that makes it easier to understand. Thank you Sir @whileponderin.

Q1. **WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN ALGEBRAIC EXPRESSION AND ALGEBRAIC EQUATION?**

The difference between algebraic expression and algebraic equation is the equality sign. Algebraic expression is the representation of a mathematical problem without the addition of an equality sign at the end of the representation while Algebraic equation is the representation of a mathematical problem with the addition of an equality sign followed by the result of the problem.

Q2. **WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A COEFFICIENT AND A CONSTANT?**

A coefficient is a constant located in front of a variable. A coefficient is always closely followed by a variable. While a constant is a number that does not change and does not carry a variable.

Q3. **IN THE EQUATION "2x + 3=0". WHICH OF THE VALUES IS A COEFFICIENT?**

The coefficient in the equation "2x + 3=0" is 2.

Q4. **A MAN BOUGHT 8 PENS AND 5 NOTE BOOKS. HE SPENT A VARIABLE TOTAL OF $10 IN THE PROCESS. REPRESENT THIS AS AN ALGEBRAIC EXPRESSION AND AS AN ALGEBRAIC EQUATION?**

Algebraic Expression: 8x + 5y

Algebraic Equation: 8x + 5y = 10z

whakee (44)last monthThanks @steemcurator09 for informing me.

My next post will be better.
