It will make you aware of the all the topics and ensure consistency in the preparation level. Also, you can find NCERT Solutions for Class 7 Chapter 12 Maths that will set a good foundation for your future goals.

• Algebraic expression is formed from variables and constants using different operations.

• Symbols which are used to represent or replace numbers. They are denoted as x,y,z,a,b,c.... and can take different numerical values. We generally use small letters to represent variables.

• The parts of an expression which are formed separately first and then added are known as terms. Terms are added to form expressions.

• Coefficient is the numerical factor in a term. Sometimes, any factor in a term is called the coefficient of the remaining part of the term.

• The terms having the same algebraic factors are called like terms.

• The terms having different algebraic factors are called unlike terms

Types of Algebraic Expressions

• Expression with one term is called a Monomial.

• Expression with two unlike terms is called a Binomial.

• Expression with three unlike terms is called a Trinomial.

• In general, an expression with one or more than one term is called a ‘Polynomial’. Thus a monomial, a binomial and a trinomial are all polynomials.

Addition and Subtraction of Algebraic Expressions

• The sum of two like terms is a like term with coefficient equal to the sum of coefficients of the two like terms.

• When we add two algebraic expressions, the like terms are added and the unlike terms are written as they are.

• The difference of two like terms is a like term with coefficient equal to the difference of coefficients of the two like terms.

• When we subtract two algebraic expressions, the like terms are subtracted and the unlike terms are written as they are.
