How to Find Combining Like Terms?

Like terms are defined as when the variable of terms is the same with the same exponent value. For example, 2x2 and 3x2 are like terms. 

Only like terms can be combined by adding or subtracting them with one another. Unlike terms cannot be combined by adding or subtracting.

Solved Example:

Combine like terms for a given equation 8x2 + 6x + 6x2 + 9 + 8x?


Like terms =  8x2, 6x2 , and 6x, 8x

So these like terms can be added  8x2 + 6xand 6x + 8x

Combining like terms equation = (8x2 + 6x2) + (6x + 8x) + 9

= 14x2 + 14x + 9

Therefore, combined like terms = 14x2 + 14x + 9

Similarly, you can try the calculator to combine like terms for the following equations:

a)  3x3 + 4x2 + 8 + 4y + 8x3 + 5x2

b)  7x2 + 6x3 +5z2 + 5 + 6x2 +4z2
