wait combining like terms tell me a equation
anonymous
  • anonymous
um..12+3x+2x2=5x-1

2x2?
anonymous
  • anonymous
is that a multiplication sign or x
anonymous
  • anonymous
no its this \[2 \times ^{2}\]
anonymous
  • anonymous
12+3x+2x squared =5x-1 ok
anonymous
  • anonymous
so in this case there would not be any like terms ,do you want to solve this problem?
anonymous
  • anonymous
can you just tell me how to combine like terms
anonymous
  • anonymous
Here an example problem : 5x+2x-3+7=5-2x ok
anonymous
  • anonymous
Like terms would be 5c,2x,-2x but you can combine -2x with the 5x and 2x because there not on the same side.ok
anonymous
  • anonymous
5x not 5c PS
anonymous
  • anonymous
ok do you know what like terms are
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes
anonymous
  • anonymous
so basically in this equation 5x+4x=-x+10 Like terms would be 5x,4x,-x ok?
anonymous
  • anonymous
ok
anonymous
  • anonymous
combining like terms is different ok you can only combine terms with the same coefficient
anonymous
  • anonymous
leading term
anonymous
  • anonymous
so like 5x-3x+7x+4x-2+5=6+9 you can not combine like terms from numbers from the other side

got that
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes
anonymous
  • anonymous
ok to combine terms this is how you would do it i will give multiple examples ok?
anonymous
  • anonymous
ok
anonymous
  • anonymous

anonymous
  • anonymous
now get it
anonymous
  • anonymous
so can you give me a brief summary on how you combine like terms in words though please :)
anonymous
  • anonymous
you can only combine like terms if they have the same exponents,or same terms like 5x can combine with 5x but cant combine with 5xsquared
anonymous
  • anonymous
Do you know how to combine like terms tho
anonymous
  • anonymous
kinda
anonymous
  • anonymous
ok i got a video after ask me what questions you have ok?
anonymous
  • anonymous
hello?

  • anonymous
yes

anonymous
  • anonymous
you never gave me a brief summary on how to combine like terms in words
anonymous
  • anonymous
WATCH the video you will get all of this trust mall your answers will get answered
anonymous
  • anonymous
ok done watching the video
anonymous
  • anonymous
hello
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes
anonymous
  • anonymous
ok now u get it
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes but i want you to describe it to me in words
anonymous
  • anonymous
In short words its simplifying the equation by taking same variables which could have any value and writing it in a short version
anonymous
  • anonymous
better now
anonymous
  • anonymous
now what are smart cents??
anonymous
  • anonymous
Hello??????
anonymous
  • anonymous
hello!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
anonymous

anonymous
  • anonymous
-_- were you go
anonymous
