Its Either B Or D. My Choice Was D But I Wanna Make Sure

simplify the second one.
bring like terms together
2n + 3n + n = 5 = ?

welshguy. so it is B Not D?

what is 2n + 3n + n

I DUNNO THATS WHY IM ASKING XD

5n + n?

you are getting there
what is 5n + n ?

5n.

if i have 5 cats and i get another cat how many acts have i got?

* cats lol

2n + 5 + n + 3n is what it is.. not what ur putting

so if i simplifiy what i put it becomes 5n + 5 + n

suppose n stands for a cat
5 cats + 1 cat = 6 cats
5n + n = 6n

you can add all the n's together.

but it doesnt tell you n = 1.. you cant add n and assume its gonna make 5n 6n

n is the same as 1n

n + n = 2n
n + 5n = 6n

1n + 5n = 6n

so then its A?

yes

how u said its 6n alone not 6n + 5n

Expression I: 6n + 5

A = expression 1 and expression 2.

you can only add LIKE terms
n and 2n and 3n all have n in them they are like terms
5 is different

yes thats right

yeah. 5 is not a like term. so where did the 5 come from.

It didn't come from anywhere its just there

how is it there. how did it get there.

you said it was 6n not 6n + 5

so how did the 5 get there...

2 boxes of apples + 5 apples
2n + 5

that* not hat.

the 5 are 5 apples

...
thats not an answer.

where.

did.

the 5.

come from

saying the 5 apples isnt really telling me.

I'm afraid its you who's not getting it my friend

how so. care to explain how im not getting it?

Expression I: 6n + 5
Expression II: 2n + 5 + n + 3n

simplify I gives II

ok

then it leave 6n + 5

therefore expression 2 simplified = expression 1

\[3 n+2 n+n+5=6 n+5 \]
