6
Terms in an expression are separated by plus or minus signs. Like terms can be grouped together because they have the same variable raised to the same power. Equivalent expressions have the same value for all values of the variables Simplifying Algebraic Expressions Constants such as 4, 0.75, and 11 are like terms because none of them have a variable. Helpful Hint

Combine like terms. Additional Example 1: Combining Like Terms To Simplify Identify like terms. Combine coefficients: 14 – 5 = 9 A. 14a – 5a 9a9a B. 7y + 8 – 3y – 1 + y Identify like terms ; the coefficient of y is 1, because 1y = y. Combine coefficients: 7 – = 5 and 8 – 1 = 7 5y Simplifying Algebraic Expressions

8
Combine like terms. Check It Out: Example 1 Identify like terms; the coefficient of q is 1, because 1q = q. Combine coefficients: 4 – 1 = 3 Identify like terms; the coefficient of c is 1, because 1c = c. Combine coefficients: 5 – 4 – 1 = 0 and 8 – 2 = 6 6 3q3q A. 4q – q B. 5c + 8 – 4c – 2 – c 11-1 Simplifying Algebraic Expressions

12
Combine like terms. Check It Out: Example 2 Identify like terms. Combine coefficients: = 7 A. 2x + 5x – 4y + 3 7x – 4y + 3 2x + 5x – 4y + 3 Identify like terms. Combine coefficients: 9 – 4 = 5 and 7 – 2 = 5 B. 9d + 7c – 4d – 2c 5d + 5c 9d + 7c – 4d – 2c No like terms. C. 8g + c – 6 8g + c – Simplifying Algebraic Expressions

13
To simplify an expression, perform all possible operations, including combining like terms Simplifying Algebraic Expressions The Distributive Property states that a(b + c) = ab + ac for all real numbers a, b, and c. For example, 2(3 + 5) = 2(3) + 2(5). Remember!

14
Simplify 6(5 + n) – 2n. Additional Example 3: Using the Distributive Property to Simplify Distributive Property. Multiply. 6(5 + n) – 2n n – 2n 6(5) + 6(n) – 2n n Combine coefficients 6 – 2 = Simplifying Algebraic Expressions

15
Simplify 3(c + 7) – c. Check It Out: Example 3 Distributive Property. Multiply. 3(c + 7) – c 3c + 21 – c 3(c) + 3(7) – c 2c + 21 Combine coefficients 3 – 1 = Simplifying Algebraic Expressions

16
Solve x + 3x = 48. Additional Example 4: Combining Like Terms to Solve Algebraic Equations Identify like terms. The coefficient of x is 1. Combine coefficients: = 4 x + 3x = 48 4x = 48 x = 12 Divide both sides by Simplifying Algebraic Expressions

17
Solve 7c – c = 102. Check It Out: Example 4 Identify like terms. The coefficient of c is 1. Combine coefficients: 7 – 1 = 6 7c – c = 102 6c = 102 c = 17 Divide both sides by Simplifying Algebraic Expressions
