### Example Problem

Evaluate the expression 2x for x=3.

### How to Evaluate the Expression in Algebra Calculator

First go to the Algebra Calculator main page.

Type the following:

1. First type the expression 2x.
2. Then type the @ symbol.
3. Then type x=3.
Try it now: 2x @ x=3

### Clickable Demo

Try entering 2x @ x=3 into the text box. After you enter the expression, Algebra Calculator will evaluate 2x for x=3: 2(3) = 6. ### More Examples

A variable is a letter, for example x, y or z, that represents an unspecified number.

$$6+x=12$$

To evaluate an algebraic expression, you have to substitute a number for each variable and perform the arithmetic operations. In the example above, the variable x is equal to 6 since 6 + 6 = 12.

If we know the value of our variables, we can replace the variables with their values and then evaluate the expression.

Example

Calculate the following expression for x=3 and z=2

$$6z+4x=\: ?$$

Solution: Replace x with 3 and z with 2 to evaluate the expression.

$$6z+4x=\: ?$$

$$6\cdot {\color{blue} 2}+ 4\cdot {\color{blue} 3}=?$$

$$\: \, 12+12=24$$
