Numerical expression: 59-34*6
Algebraic expression: 5x-3x+2
A numerical expression is limited to only numbers and can always be simplified to one number.
An algebraic expressuion uses terms, more specifically a variable like x, and a constant like 2.

Numerical Expression:
1.) 20+2-8 ( Or any other number with two symbols on math )
Algebraic Expression:
2.) h x 2 ( Or any other number using only one symbol an a
letter )
The difference between a numerical and algebraic expressions is
that numerical expressions use only numbers, but algebraic
expressions use letters as variables to represent numbers.

### What is the difference between simplifying and evaluating algebraic expressions?

Simplifying an expression is getting rid of any brackets or
parentheses, performing as many operations as you can - including
combining like terms.
To evaluate an expression you would substitute the numerical
values of all the variables, carry out all the operations
(addition, multiplication etc) in the expression to reach the
answer - the numerical value of the expression.
