Variables are treated like numbers because they are numbers. For instance 2 þ x means two plus the quantity x and 2x means two times the quantity x (when no operation sign is given, the operation is assumed to be multiplication). The expression 3x þ 4 means three times x plus four. This is not the same as 3x þ 4x which is three x’s plus four x’s for a total of seven x’s: 3x þ 4x ¼ 7x. If you are working with variables and want to check whether the expression you have computed is really equal to the expression with which you started, take some larger prime number, not a factor of anything else in the expression, and plug it into both the original expression and the last one.
