For example, we could say: A number plus the square of the number is equal to half the number plus the cube of the square root of the number. This is much easier to express using notation: $\displaystyle x+x^2=\frac{x}{2}+x\sqrt{x}$. The latter is easier to understand, and we can immediately jump into algebra with it.
