Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3the terms are separated by a + or a

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3eg: `x+yz+w` has four terms: x, y, z, w

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3the constant is any term that doesn't have a variable attached. It's a single fixed number

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh ok so there are 4 terms and 1 constant in the equation

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0but what is coefficient

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3coefficients are the numbers in front of the variables

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3eg: in `7x`, the 7 is the coefficient

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so there are 3 coefficients in the equation

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh ok but its not done

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3I should have stated that subtraction is the same as adding a negative so something like `12` is the same as `1 + (2)`

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3therefore, \[\Large 6a ^{2}  5ab + 3b  12\] is the same as \[\Large 6a ^{2} +( 5ab) + 3b+(  12)\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3in that second form, we see each term is separated by a +

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3terms are: 6a^2 5ab 3b 12

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3I'm sure you can see what the constant is for the coefficients, just list the numbers in front of each variable term

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.36, NEGATIVE 5 3

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3because the term is 5ab the number in front is 5

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3go back to \[\Large 6a ^{2} +( 5ab) + 3b+(  12)\]

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3the constant should be 12 for the same reason

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0constant=12 coefficient=6, 5, 3 is that correct?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0they said to simplify 2 more expressions by combining like terms

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3which expressions?

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3what are a pair of like terms that you see?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[b) 8m ^{2} + 9m  7m ^{2} + n ^{3}\]

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the pair of like terms in the first one?

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3yeah do you see any like terms in the first one?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes i see two pairs of like terms

jim_thompson5910
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3ok one pair is what?

jim_thompson5910
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3more like 5x and 3x, but you have the right idea

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3they would combine to ???

jim_thompson5910
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3yeah, 5x + (3x) = ??

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3you'll do the same for the other pair of like terms

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0what is the other pair

jim_thompson5910
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3look for any terms that have something in common

jim_thompson5910
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3for the 5x and 3x, they had an x in common

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3they add to what?

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3notice how there is only one y term, so there are no like terms for the y terms all of this means `5x−3−3x+6y+4` simplifies to `2x+6y+1`

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh ok so 2x+6y+1 is the answer or should i evaluate the expression

jim_thompson5910
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3if you knew the value of x and y, you could evaluate to get a single number

jim_thompson5910
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3but they didn't provide values for x and y

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So for now 2x+6y+1 is the answer, right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ok thank u very much u dont have to explain the 2 expression because its almost the same as the first expression

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3yeah it's very similar so you shouldn't have too much trouble with it

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3just keep in mind that terms with \(\Large m^2\) are NOT like terms with \(\Large m^3\) they both have m, but different exponents makes them different and unlike terms

jim_thompson5910
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3same with m and m^2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh ok thanks for the tips i fanned and i gave u a medal for all three questions thank u very much i will ask u whenever i have a question from now on.
