I'm kind of confused as to what simplified mean? Can you please provide me with a definiton...
Like I'm kind of stumped as to what one is more simplified
7(2x + 3) or 14x 21
Please explain what it mean for an expression to be "simplified"

The shorter the expression, usually the more simplified it is.
14x  21
