What is the difference between an expression and an equation?
An equation is a mathematical statement with an 'equal to' symbol between two algebraic expressions that have equal values
A variable expression (or) an algebraic expression is a combination of terms by the operations such as addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, etc.
Answer: Expression is a random combination of numbers, while equation has two different expressions connected to each other
Let's look into some examples
We can say that an expression is a random combination of numbers, variables, functions, etc.
For example, 3x - 2 is an expression.
While on the other hand, and equation means that two different expressions are connected to each other by an equal to sign in between,
For example, 3x - 2 = 5 + x is an equation.
