First of all: It is simple to do it.
equivalent means that they can be driven from eachother.
(x^2-1)/(x-1) and (x+1) are equivalent
(x-1)*(x-2) and (x^2-3x+2) are equivalent
I'm a little confused (well more like a lot) about algebraic expressions. My teacher is a fast explainer and also a difficult one so I couldn't understand what she was saying...
My question is, what does it mean for two algebraic expressions to be equivalent?
And what methods are there for finding algebraic expressions that are equivalent to the ones that are given?
A thorough explanation if possible, please~
