A general example to help you recognize patterns and spot the information you're looking for

A mathematical expression can have variables as part of the expression. If x=3, and y=5, the expression $$7x + y - 4$$ becomes $$(7 * 3) + 5 - 4$$ which is equal to $$21 + 5 - 4$$ or $$22$$We use them when we want to figure the out cost of multiple items.
