Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Because of their power?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Note that, 6x^2 and 6y^2 are not considered to be like terms. If there is same variable and same power then they are like terms. Like : \(4x\) and \(2x\) etc.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Because x and y are not the same variable.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yes they are also like terms. 123, can you now arrange the whole expression ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Not like that... for example I have : \(\large x+2x^2 + 8x +4x^2 \) then I will write this in arranged form as : \( \large x + 8x + 2x^2 + 4x^2\) Are you understanding my point?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0See I have : \(\large{11x6x^2+x^3+2x^2x+6x^3}\) Then I have like terms : \(\large{\color{blue}{11x \quad \& \quad x }}\) \(\large{\color{green}{6x^2 \quad \& \quad 2x^2 }}\) \(\large{ \color{red}{x^3 \quad \& \quad 6x^3} }\) Now I can write the original expression as: \(\large{\color{blue}{11x  x} \color{green}{6x^2 + 2x^2 } \color{red}{+x^3 + 6x^3} }\)
