9. HorseCrazyGirlForever

How did you get that answer?

10. sambhav__jain

11. sambhav__jain

@Compassionate u r wrong

12. Compassionate

Add like terms. Add the terms that are ALIKE. x + x + 2 + 3 for example. The X's are both like terms. The 2 and 3 are also like terms y + y + x + x for example. The y's cannot be added to the x's, but they can be added to the y's to get 2y.

@sambhav__jain , No, I am not.

14. Compassionate

10x+2x-7x-10-8+13+ We're simplifying. so we get 5x - 5. You factored.

15. sambhav__jain

it is given 10x+2x-7x so it is 5x -10-8+13=-5

16. sambhav__jain

so u dont get 19x -5
