ok if u see any like terms, just add them. i think somthing went wrong in ur answer.. . check :)
 one year ago

andriod09Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
for which part of the equation though?

ganeshie8Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
i dont see any like terms. so thats it i hope

andriod09Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
12x^4 + 16x^11 36x^3, 3xy^4  4x^8y^. are all like terms
 one year ago

ganeshie8Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
why do u think they are like terms
 one year ago

andriod09Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
they are all the same i.e. (x)^4,(x)^11,(x)^3; (xy)^4,(x)^8(y)^4
 one year ago

ganeshie8Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
(x)^4 and (x)^11 are not like terms
 one year ago

ganeshie8Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
to be called as like terms, terms should satisfy two things 1) variable letters, for example x, y 2) exponent of variables
 one year ago

ganeshie8Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
terms listed by you are satisfying first condition. but they are failing second condition
 one year ago

ganeshie8Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
if u see, (x)^4,(x)^11 first one has an exponent of 4, and second one has an exponent of 11 so they are not like terms. we cant add them
 one year ago

andriod09Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
oh but they are. they are both (x)s. so by that, all you would do is att the exponets and the numerals.
 one year ago

ganeshie8Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
for addition, BOTH variable(x)s and exponents(4, 11) MUST be equal for multiplication, variables must be equal.

@myininaya Hold on ima get a moderator to see whos right. i don't doubt you or anything, i just think that because they are both (x)s, then they could be added.

exponent must match, then only they are called liketerms, liketerms we can add

I don't get it though, lets see if we can get a mod in here to help me explain it.

callisto, can you explain how (x)^4and(x)^11and(x)^3(stop)(xy)^4And(x)^8(y)^4 arn't like terms? the (stop) seperates two different types of variables
 one year ago

CallistoBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
@ganeshie8 has explained it actually. For like terms, the unknown variable should be the same, and of the same power. For instance, x^4 and x^5 are not like term. Even though they share the same variable, their powers are not the same. So, we cannot do addition or subtraction for these two terms.
 one year ago

andriod09Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
but to be a like term, they have to be the SAME variable though, so wouldn't you add the exponites? x^4+x^5=x^9??
 one year ago

CallistoBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
To be a like terms, there are TWO conditions: 1. same variable 2. same variable of the SAME POWER For x^4 and x^5, they have the same variable x. I think you agree on that. But the problem comes when they fail to meet the SECOND condition, that is they do NOT share the SAME power  for x^4, the power of x is 4; for x^5, the power of x is 5. So, in this case, they CANNOT be added together nor subtraction from each other.

CallistoBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
Perhaps you should know this: x^a + x^b ≠ x^(a+b) BUT! (x^a) (x^b) = x^(a+b) when x is a nonzero real number and a, b are integers.
