Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You have terms in algebra. For example in this equation you have p and your number. You have to combine them(or add) together.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You have a positive 4p plus a negative 7p. You can rewrite this as 4p7p. If you put this into a calculator you would get 3p or you could draw a number line and place a point on 4 and go backwards 7 spaces
