Lesson Summary:

In this Elementary Algebra Review, you'll learn how to simplify numerical expressions using the order of operations and evaluate variable expressions using given values. The lesson covers special cases such as dividing by zero, which results in undefined answers, and multiplying by zero, which always results in an answer of zero. You'll also learn how to plug in values for variables and simplify the expression accordingly.
