Evaluating expressions

This online calculator substitutes a specific value for each variable, and performs the operations, evaluating the given expression.

In an algebraic expression, letters, representing variables, can stand for numbers. When we substitute a specific value for each variable, and then perform the operations, we are evaluating the expression.
So, this calculator evaluates the expressions for you. It replaces each letter in the expression with the assigned value then performs the operations in the expression using the correct order of operations.
Be careful with variable names and their use in expression, if you make a mistake, you will likely get incorrect results.
