    like asking what is \[7y-15z+2y-4z\] exactly

    for example \(7\sqrt{13x}+2\sqrt{13x}=9\sqrt{13x}\)

    and \[-15\sqrt{2x}-4\sqrt{2x}=-19\sqrt{2x}\]

    put them together and get \[9\sqrt{13x}-19\sqrt{2x}\] there is nothing more than can be done

    since \(\sqrt{13x}\)and \(\sqrt{2x}\) are not like terms, you cannot combine them in one term
