How do you write the algebraic expression: 10 less than x?

awitiotiz Answered question September 19, 2022

An algebraic expression is an expression that contains numbers, operations, and one or more variables.

The numerical factor of a term that contains a variable is known as a coefficient.

A symbol (or letter) that represents one or more elements is called variables.

A term with no variable is called constant.

We therefore have to write an algebraic expression for 10 less than a variable x.

Here x is a variable which the algebraic expression is formed.

Less than means to subtract the value by 10.

So, for 10 less than a variable x, we have to subtract 10 from x.

The algebraic expression is xâˆ’10.
