Algebraic Equations and Expressions

One of the major differences between algebraic equations and algebraic expressions consist of the equal sign because the equal sign consitutes for a solution that can be checked to verify that it is the solution. Expressions are meant to be simplified so common factors are important in simplifying expressions. Equations give a way to actually check the answer by subsitution for the variable while expressions are normally checked by multiplication or another type of operation.
