# What is the simplified expression?

By a simplified expression, we mean that we bring the given expression in a standard form of a polynomial.

## Answer: The simplified expressions are useful in finding the zeros of a given polynomial. Also it becomes easier to perform any operations on simplifying the algebraic expressions.

Let us know more about simplifying the given expressions.

**Explanation:**

We can simplify polynomial expressions in the following ways.

- By combining the like terms
- By FOIL technique. The FOIL (First, Outer, Inner, Last) technique is used for the arithmetic operation of multiplication.

For example the simplified expression for

- 5x
^{5 }+ 7x^{3 }+ 8x + 9x^{3 }− 4x^{4 }− 10x − 3x^{5 }is obtianed by combining like terms 2x^{5}− 4x^{4 }+ 16x^{3 }− 2x. - (x − 4)(x + 3) = x(x + 3) − 4(x + 3) = x
^{2}− x − 12.

We can simplify the arithmetic expressions by BODMAS.
