7 x 10/2/08 Combining Like Terms #16
Terms in an expression are separated by + and –. A term can be a number, a variable, or a product of numbers and variables. x 3 7x – 3y y + term term term term term Coefficient Variable 7 term x Coefficient: a number that is multiplied by a variable

Like terms are terms with the same variable raised to the same power. Constants, like 5, , and 3.2, are also like terms. 1 2 Like Terms Unlike Terms w 7 3x and 2x w and 5 and 1.8 5x2 and 2x 6a and 6b 3.2 and n Only one term contains a variable The exponents are different. The variables are different

2-9 Combining Like Terms Identify like terms in the list.
Course 2 2-9 Combining Like Terms Identify like terms in the list. 3t 5w2 7t 9v w2 8v Like terms: 3t and 7t 5w2 and 4w2 9v and 8v Use different shapes or colors to indicate sets of like terms. Helpful Hint

Course 2 2-9 Combining Like Terms Insert Lesson Title Here Combining like terms is like grouping similar objects. x x x x x x x x + = x x x x x x x x x x = 9x 4x + 5x To combine like terms that have variables, add or subtract the coefficients.

2-9 Combining Like Terms Combine like terms. A. 6t – 4t
Course 2 2-9 Combining Like Terms Combine like terms. A. 6t – 4t 6t and 4t are like terms. 2t Subtract the coefficients. B. 45x – 37y + 87 In this expression, there are no like terms to combine.

Additional Example 2C: Combining Like Terms
Course 2 2-9 Combining Like Terms Additional Example 2C: Combining Like Terms Combine like terms. C. 3a2 + 5b + 11b2 – 4b + 2a2 – 6 Identify like terms. 3a2 + 5b + 11b2 – 4b + 2a2 – 6 Group like terms. (3a2 + 2a2) + (5b – 4b) + 11b2 – 6 5a2 + b + 11b2 – 6 Add or subtract the coefficients.
