hint:
t and t are like terms
t^2/2 and t^2 are like terms
does that help?

Is it 2t + 2t^2 + 2 ?

\[\huge \implies (t + t) + \left(\frac{t^2}{2} + t^2\right)\]

t + t is like 1 + 1

t^2 / 2 + t^2 is like 1/2 + 1
does that help?

Kind of, but if t + t is like 1 +1 why cant you just make it 2t?

lgbasallote
Best Response

i was just making an analogy how t + t is like 1 + 1

the improper fraction form of 1 1/2 is
\[\huge \frac{(2 \times 1) + 1}{2}\]
