    Saying, for example, 25 years is Arithmetic, a known value. Saying d = xy is Algebra, an unknown value.

    By the way, saying for example, it's 5:24 or 5h and 24m is Arithmetic. Saying t = xh:xm is Algebra. t is time.

    No that is not algebra. Against all logic in your 'equation' the units are replaced with a y. So again all you have d = x.

    I don't know what that is, but it sure isn't algebra!

    Algebra is the branch of Mathematics that generalizes accounts, for example, with letters.

    In another sense, A = xy (age is equal to so many years). A = xy represents all ages in years.

    M = xm (the movie lasts so many minutes). M = xm represents the duration of all movies in minutes.

    Perhaps they are not pure equations, but they are generalizations.
