Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[7c^2+c^2=(7+1)c^2=8c^2\] hope this helps, proceed this way, just add similar terms together

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[(7c^2 + 8c – 8) + (c^2 – 3c + 5)\]the parenthesis dont matter here since the sign outside is a plus sign:\[7c^2+8c8+c^23c+5\]\[\color{blue}{7c^2}\color{red}{+8c}\color{green}{8}\color{blue}{+c^2}\color{red}{3c}\color{green}{+5}\] \[7c^2+c^2=8c^2\]\[8c3c=5c\]\[8+5=3\] \[\color{purple}{8c^2+5c3}\]
