What is Algebra? (Exposed)!

Well, What is Algebra??? In my opinion is that, Algebra is nothing but solving for a unknown number.. I can show u some example's !!!!! But all Algebra is the part of mathematics in which letters and other general symbols are used to represent numbers and quantities in formula and equations.

5x=25 (This would represent as Algebra. U know why? The "x" would be the unknown number in this equation or such a expression)!!!

In this equation, the unknown number would be "2x" or just "x" Well with this equation,there is solution which would be x=1 how???

Well U have 2x+3=5. All mathematics's would know that we need to isolate 2x so we would subtract 3 to have 2x by it self on 1 side and the difference on the other

2x=2 so as other's we would divide to get just "x" by it self 2x/2=2/2 to have


For any reason u dont understand this equation I did 2x+3=5 here's 2 more problem but with the steps shown!!!

But with this problem it's showed the simplify version but both answer will be the same!!! But place in a y-term version

This discussion board is a place to discuss our Daily Challenges and the math and science related to those challenges. Explanations are more than just a solution — they should explain the steps and thinking strategies that you used to obtain the solution. Comments should further the discussion of math and science.

When posting on Brilliant:

  • Use the emojis to react to an explanation, whether you're congratulating a job well done , or just really confused .
  • Ask specific questions about the challenge or the steps in somebody's explanation. Well-posed questions can add a lot to the discussion, but posting "I don't understand!" doesn't help anyone.
  • Try to contribute something new to the discussion, whether it is an extension, generalization or other idea related to the challenge.
  • Stay on topic — we're all here to learn more about math and science, not to hear about your favorite get-rich-quick scheme or current world events.
