variable you can change numbers. and for this reason i will give an example,
3 + 7
2 ื y + 5
A variable is a symbol that represents a number. Usually we use letters such as n, t, or x for variables. For example, we might say that s stands for the side-length of a square. We now treat s as if it were a number we could use. The perimeter of the square is given by 4 ื s. The area of the square is given by s ื s. When working with variables, it can be helpful to use a letter that will remind you of what the variable stands for: let n be the number of people in a movie theater; let t be the time it takes to travel somewhere; let d be the distance from my house to the park.
2 + 6 ื (4 - 2)
z + 3 ื (8 - z)
