Writing Linear and Nonlinear Expressions from Mathematical Statements

Understanding the Key Terms:

Linear Expression: Contains only variables raised to the power of 1.

Nonlinear Expression: Contains variables raised to powers other than 1.

Steps to Write Expressions:

- Identify the Variables: Determine which quantities in the statement are unknown and represent them with variables (e.g., x, y, z).
- Translate the Operations: Convert the words into mathematical symbols:

- “Sum” or “added to”: +
- “Difference” or “subtracted from”: -
- “Product” or “multiplied by”: ×
- “Quotient” or “divided by”: ÷
- “Squared”: ²
- “Square root”: √

- Form the Expression: Combine the variables and operations to create the mathematical expression.
