Simplify algebraic expressions

The calculator will accept any of the following expressions :

  • Straight lines: (3x - 2)
  • Polynomials: (x^3 + 3x^2 - 5x + 2)
  • Any of the trigonometric functions: sin(x), cos(x/2), tan(2x), csc(3x), sec(x/4), cot(x)
  • The inverse trigonometric functions: arcsin(x), arccos(x), arctan(x), arccsc(x), arcsec(x), arccot(x)
  • Exponential (e^x) and logarithm (ln(x) for natural log and log(x) for log base 10)
  • Absolute value: use "abs" like this: abs(x)
  • The hyperbolic functions and their inverses: sinh(x), cosh(x), tanh(x), arcsinh(x), arccosh(x), arctanh(x)
  • ceiling: ceil(x) and round: round(x)
  • square root: sqrt(x)

You can also use any combinations of the above, like "ln(abs(x)".

What does it mean to write a simplified math expression?

When you simplify an expression, you are mainly trying to write it in the simplest way possible. Ultimately, there should be no more addition, subtraction, multiplication or division.

What are the rules for simplifying expressions?

Respect the order of operations

Start by dealing with what is in parentheses

It's the turn of the multiplications

Then let's move on to the division

Then add

Subtract

Check your expression one last time
