    3x + 12 + 8x --- parenthesis are not needed....combine like terms so what is 8x + 3x ??

    the x's do not change when adding...so 8x + 3x = 11x. and even though 12 has no like terms, you cannot forget about it. And you cannot add/subtract unlike terms. So we end up with : 11x + 12 understand ?
