    \(2x^2y\) has a like term as what other one?

    5x^2y+3x^2+4y+2y is what I got so far... 5x^2y+3x^2+6y also, because there was 4y and 2y

    I think so... Unless I'm missing another like term somewhere. So it could be C? If I didn't look over something.

    let me check \(2x^2y+3x^2y = 5x^2y\) \(3x^2\) \(5x^2y+3x^2\) \(4y + 2y = 6y\) \(5x^2y+3x^2+6y\)

    in the first one, the added the exponents which is something you shouldn't be doing when combining like terms
