Do you know what "like terms" means?

10x and -9x are like terms because they have variable and power (the x to the first power in this case. Simply combine them together (10x-9x) to get 1x

@Ryan361 Yes so far, but do I have to do anything with the other numbers? and why or why not? thats what im confused about I don't know if i should ignore them or do something with them...

the numbers in front of the variables do not matter. 7x and 4x are like terms 7xy and 7y are not like terms The variable AND power have to be the same to be like terms
