## Re: Differences

I know the meaning, but the concepts are really ambigous. Algebra means "Working with number", and "airthmetic" I thought had the same meaning. B/c the school here does not seperate like that. Anyone could give me a concept?

Arithmetic is usually confined to addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division of numbers.

Algebra introduces symbols for numbers or sets and also deals with relationships between sets of numbers.
