Further Exploration

Evaluate expressions at specific values of their variables. Include expressions that arise from formulas used in real-world problems. Perform arithmetic operations, including those involving whole-number exponents, in the conventional order when there are no parentheses to specify a particular order (Order of Operations).

Need to plug in a variable value into an expression? Great! Does the expression have an exponent in it? Even better! Follow along with this tutorial as you see how to simplify an expression for a given variable value.
