Verbal expressions in algebra

Verbal expressions in mathematics are standardized terms that help alleviate confusion created by the attempts to explain mathematical expressions using words. Each element and operator in a mathematical equation has its own name and there are standardized phrases that are used to describe the relationships between them. Putting it plainly, they help you turn sentences like: “The second number on the left, behind the little cross, has a small number 2 a bit to the right and above it and then there is the small letter x and then 17 and after that two, short lines on top of one another then number 4” into something people can actually understand. Using examples, we are going to list the verbal expressions you are going to need to communicate all the basic mathematical expressions you want.
