What are the differences among expressions, equations, and functions? Note:
In mathematics, an expression is a general term for any well formed combination of mathematical symbols. [ It may consist of just one or more numbers, variables, operators, functions, and their arguments that evaluate to a single answer.
For example: A + 2A
An equation is a mathematical statement, in symbols, that has two expressions that are exactly the same (or equivalent).
For example: A + 2A = 3A
An inequality is a statement about the relative size or order of two expressions.
For example: A < A + 1

I'm sorry that that wasn't a good answer. Please hold on while I contact an expert.Weegy:
An algebraic expression is a collection of numbers, variables, and operators (addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, exponentiation, [ etc) which represent some value.
An equation is a pair of expressions which are connected by an equal sign (=). An equation states that the expression on one side of the equal sign has the same value as the expression on the other side.
A function is a particular type of equation. A function relates the value of an independent variable, typically denoted as "x", to the value of a dependent variable, typically denoted as "y" or "f(x)" (which is shorthand notation for "function of x"). While this is very similar to the concept of an equation, a function speaks more to the idea of an input value leading to an output value.
