From Arabic الجبر(al-jabr, reunion”, “resetting of broken parts), used in the title of al-Khwarizmi’s influential work علم الجبر والمقابلَة (ilm al-jabr wa’l-muqābala), “the science of restoration and equating like with like”


  • IPA(key): /ˈalxebɾa/, [ˈalxeβɾa]


álgebra f (plural álgebras)

  1. algebra

Usage notesEdit

  • The feminine noun álgebra is like other feminine nouns starting with a stressed a sound in that it takes the definite article el (normally reserved for masculine nouns) in the singular when there is no intervening adjective:
el álgebra
  • However, if an adjective, even one that begins with a stressed a sound such as alta or ancha, intervenes between the article and the noun, the article reverts to la.
