Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Are you familiar with like terms and unlike terms?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Like terms are those terms that have the same powers of variables, even though the coefficient (including the sign) may be different. For example, 2x^2 and 6.5x^2 are like terms.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1When you have to add or subtract two expressions, you need to group together the like terms, because you can then add/subtract the coefficients among the like terms.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1So what would be 4x^3 2x^3?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Correct. Just think of x^3 as apples, x^2 as oranges, so what would be 5x^33x^2+4x^3x^2 ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i think it would be x^2(9x−4) but i'm not sure

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Yes, this is correct. 9x^34x^2 would have been totally acceptable as well. Good!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1ok, now we can get to work on the problem. Can you simplify the expression by removing all parentheses? (3y^28)(5y^2+1)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yeah i got this part, its 2y^29 , but i can't the other part of it which is y^2?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.12y^29 is the complete answer. Put a 2 in the box before the y^2, and put a 9 in the other box. I think the program is kind of babysitting us.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so the answer would look like this right, we get 2y^29
