Question:

True or False:

If an algebraic expression calls for Y=8, that means that you will use the number 8 to replace the letter Y in order to solve the expression?

Evaluating an Expression:

To evaluate an expression which is in terms of one or more variables at given values of variables, we just substitute the values of the variables in the given expression and simplify it.

Answer and Explanation:

The given algebraic expression is {eq}Y=8 {/eq}.

It obviously means that the value of the variable {eq}Y {/eq} is {eq}8 {/eq}.

The given statement, "you will use the number 8 to replace the letter Y in order to solve the expression", also says the same thing.

Therefore, the given statement is TRUE.
