Margaret M. ...For example, when we say x=2, everybody *just knows* that we're talking about a single x equaling 2. 1x is written as x. Because it's more "efficient." (Sounds better than saying "lazy", doesn't it?) Once the language of algebra becomes comfortable, we can start playing around with it, which leads us to the wild world of algebra. Fun with Triangles!

Jordan V. ...Consider the operation d/dx( f(x) ). It is difficult to know what these symbols are implying unless you might see that d/dx( x^2) = 2x, d/dx( x^3) = 3x^2, d/dx( x^4) = 4x^3, d/dx( x^5) = 5x^4. Eventually you might catch that the power of x in the parentheses drops down and becomes a coefficient in each equation. This is just one pattern you are guaranteed to learn with plenty of repetition.
