True or false: 6 x2  2 x  14 y + 3 x
1. There are 4 terms.
2. 6 x3 and 3 x are like terms.
3. The coefficient on y is 14.
4. Simplified, the expression is 6 x2 + 5 x  14 y .
5. The commutative property allows the expression to be written as 6 x2  14 y + 3 x  2 x . please help!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.01. False there is only one term with a lot more subterms 2. What does "like terms" mean? 3. True 4. False the part with x should have coefficient 1 5. True

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0That doesn't sound like math at all. Thus I can not give you the answer for 2. I mean on the one hand I could combine it like \[6x^3+3x = 3x(2x^2 + 1)\] but on the other hand that result still contains an adittion operation.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yeah...I realized the description isn't the best...I just Googled it... :\ It's okay...I think that they aren't....I'm not positive though....Thanks anyway! I fanned you!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.01. False 2 Terms containing the same variable to the same power that can be combined like 4x, 7x , and 99x are like terms, x^2 is not the same as x and can't be directly combined. 3. No, the coefficient of y is 14 Note the negative sign. 4. If the 6 is intended to be a coefficient, yes. Why is the 6 set apart from the x^2??? 5. Yes What area do you need help in those examples?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Thanks! To answer your question from: question four, "If the 6 is intended to be a coefficient, yes. Why is the 6 set apart from the x^2???" It was: six times X with the exponent of 2...I'm not sure what you meant.... Thank you for helping me though!
