Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Once you have simplified the equations, the answers will be very clear. Basically, this entire problem is just simplification and combination of like terms. However, x cannot be combined with x or x^2. They have to be relatively the same. x^2 could be combined with x^3 to make x^5. Get it now?
