    Since it is just addition and subtraction, you can remove the parenthesis. Then for each exponent term with a number in front, you can combine.

    That is the simplified form. The general rule is... \[a*x^n + b*x^n = (a+b)*x^n\]

    Must have typed somehting wrong here or there, for \[(9y^6+3)-8y^6 = y^6+3\]
