Simplifying Algebraic Expressions
Daniela Schekaiban, Melissa Sigrist
How to use like terms?
term you need to put together variables with variables, and numbers with numbers. For example :
2a + 4
1.- You need to add the two number that will give you 6.
2.- Then you need to write the answer like this 6 x a because you dont know the value of a.
Note: You can olny use this for multiplication and addition using the properties of Associative and Commutative.
