Algebraic expressions

## Algebraic expression is an expression containing numbers and

variables, e.g. 2x+5+3x+1

## The algebraic representation where between the numbers and the

variables is only the multiplication, is called a mononym ,
for example 2xyz, 3abc

## Mononynames that have the same main part are called

identical Mononyms,for example 2xyz, 3xyz

The sum of mononyms, at least two of which are not the same, is
called a polynomial, for example 2x+1, 2x2 +x+1

## In relation to a variable, the largest of the variables of this

variable, is called degree of the polynomial,thus the polynomial

## 2x5+3x2+2x is 5th degree polynomial

Identities
(a+b)2=a2+2ab+b2-
(a-b)2=a2-2ab+b2
(a-b)3=a3-3a2b+3ab2-b3
a2-b2=(a-b)(a+b)

Examples :
(2+a)2=22 +2.2a + a2
(2-a)2=22 -2.2a + a2
(a-1)3=a3-3a2+3a-1
a2-22=(a-2)(a+2)
Factorization
A common factor in all terms
αx+bx+cx=(α+b+c)x
example : 2x+3x+4x=(2+3+4)x=9x

## A common factor in terms groups

ax+by+ay+bx=a(x+y)+b(x+y)=(a+b)(x+y)
2x+3y+2y+3x=2(x+y)+3(x+y)= 5(x+y)
