Just as you can perform operations on numbers, you can perform operations on polynomials. To add or subtract polynomials, combine like terms.

Example 1: Adding and Subtracting Monomials
Add or Subtract.. A. 12p3 + 11p2 + 8p3 12p3 + 11p2 + 8p3 Identify like terms. Rearrange terms so that like terms are together. 12p3 + 8p3 + 11p2 20p3 + 11p2 Combine like terms. B. 5x2 – 6 – 3x + 8 Identify like terms. 5x2 – 6 – 3x + 8 Rearrange terms so that like terms are together. 5x2 – 3x + 8 – 6 5x2 – 3x + 2 Combine like terms.

Example 1: Adding and Subtracting Monomials
Add or Subtract.. C. t2 + 2s2 – 4t2 – s2 t2 + 2s2 – 4t2 – s2 Identify like terms. Rearrange terms so that like terms are together. t2 – 4t2 + 2s2 – s2 –3t2 + s2 Combine like terms. D. 10m2n + 4m2n – 8m2n 10m2n + 4m2n – 8m2n Identify like terms. 6m2n Combine like terms.

Like terms are constants or terms with the same variable(s) raised to the same power(s). To review combining like terms, see lesson 1-7. Remember!

Check It Out! Example 1 Add or subtract. c. 2x8 + 7y8 – x8 – y8 Identify like terms. 2x8 + 7y8 – x8 – y8 Rearrange terms so that like terms are together. 2x8 – x8 + 7y8 – y8 x8 + 6y8 Combine like terms. d. 9b3c2 + 5b3c2 – 13b3c2 9b3c2 + 5b3c2 – 13b3c2 Identify like terms. b3c2 Combine like terms.

Polynomials can be added in either vertical or horizontal form.
In vertical form, align the like terms and add: In horizontal form, use the Associative and Commutative Properties to regroup and combine like terms. 5x2 + 4x + 1 + 2x2 + 5x + 2 7x2 + 9x + 3 (5x2 + 4x + 1) + (2x2 + 5x + 2) = (5x2 + 2x2) + (4x + 5x) + (1 + 2) = 7x2 + 9x + 3

A. (4m2 + 5) + (m2 – m + 6) (4m2 + 5) + (m2 – m + 6) Identify like terms. Group like terms together. (4m2 + m2) + (–m) +(5 + 6) 5m2 – m + 11 Combine like terms. B. (10xy + x) + (–3xy + y) (10xy + x) + (–3xy + y) Identify like terms. Group like terms together. (10xy – 3xy) + x + y 7xy + x + y Combine like terms.

(6x2 – 4y) + (3x2 + 3y – 8x2 – 2y) (6x2 – 4y) + (3x2 + 3y – 8x2 – 2y) Identify like terms. Group like terms together within each polynomial. (6x2 + 3x2 – 8x2) + (3y – 4y – 2y) 6x2 – 4y + –5x2 + y Use the vertical method. Combine like terms. x2 – 3y Simplify.

Identify like terms. Group like terms together. Combine like terms.

Check It Out! Example 2 Add (5a3 + 3a2 – 6a + 12a2) + (7a3 – 10a). (5a3 + 3a2 – 6a + 12a2) + (7a3 – 10a) Identify like terms. (5a3 + 7a3) + (3a2 + 12a2) + (–10a – 6a) Group like terms together. 12a3 + 15a2 – 16a Combine like terms.

To subtract polynomials, remember that subtracting is the same as adding the opposite. To find the opposite of a polynomial, you must write the opposite of each term in the polynomial: –(2x3 – 3x + 7)= –2x3 + 3x – 7

Example 3A: Subtracting Polynomials
(x3 + 4y) – (2x3) Rewrite subtraction as addition of the opposite. (x3 + 4y) + (–2x3) (x3 + 4y) + (–2x3) Identify like terms. (x3 – 2x3) + 4y Group like terms together. –x3 + 4y Combine like terms.

Use the vertical method. –x2 + 0x + 1 + –x2 – x – 1 Write 0x as a placeholder. –2x2 – x Combine like terms.

Example 4: Application A farmer must add the areas of two plots of land to determine the amount of seed to plant. The area of plot A can be represented by 3x2 + 7x – 5 and the area of plot B can be represented by 5x2 – 4x Write a polynomial that represents the total area of both plots of land. (3x2 + 7x – 5) Plot A. + (5x2 – 4x + 11) Plot B. 8x2 + 3x + 6 Combine like terms.

Check It Out! Example 4 The profits of two different manufacturing plants can be modeled as shown, where x is the number of units produced at each plant. Use the information above to write a polynomial that represents the total profits from both plants. –0.03x2 + 25x – 1500 Eastern plant profit. + –0.02x2 + 21x – 1700 Southern plant profit. –0.05x2 + 46x – 3200 Combine like terms.
