Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Hello there! In problems like these, we want to look for like terms. In this problem, 3u and 4u are like terms. 7v and 2v are also like terms. Following me so far?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Excellent. To solve this equation, you're going to want to add the like terms together. For example, 3u+4u=7u. Can you do the other set of like terms for me? @izy_valle

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Close! However, you are not adding 7v and 2v, but rather 7v + (2v). This can be rewritten as 7v2v. Can you tell me now?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1In the future, think about it this way: \(\large \color{green}{3u} \color{blue}{+ 7v }~ \color{green}{+4u} ~\color{blue}{– 2v}\) \(\large \color{green}{3u+4u=7u}\) \(\large \color{blue}{7v2v=5v}\) Final answer: \(\large \color{green}{7u}+~\color{blue}{5v}\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1The greens are added together. Once you have that, you subtract 2v from 7v, since 2v has a subtraction sign in front of it. Once you have these terms, you add them together and get your final answer. Does this make sense?
