Hi Kristin!  When you know the values for variables, you can replace
the variables with their values.  For example, if you know

z = 6

and you want to know

2z + 1,

you can say

2z + 1 = 2 X 6 + 1

since z = 6.

Then you know that 2z + 1 = 13.

Does that make sense?

Let us know if you need more help.
