This includesradicals that contain variable factors, but continues the simplification of various terms in a sum or difference so that possible like terms can be added orsubtracted.


This shows how to simplify the parts of an addition of radicals and then add or subtract the like terms.


This demonstrates adding two rational expressions that have different terms individually in the numerator and a common denominator. When the fractions are added, it creates the possibility of adding…


This describes the process of solving for a particular variable in terms of other variables in an equation. There is a need to go further to combine like terms before it is complete.


A more complicated version of solving an equation. It specifically addresses dealing with two variable terms on the same side of the equals sigh.


A short and simple demo about adding like variable terns that are together on one side of the equals sign in an equation.


This demonstrates using distribution of multiplication across addition or subtraction then shows how to pick like terms and combine them.


The key to getting this type of question is distributing any minus sign on the outside of the parentheses to each term on the inside thereby changing all of the i nner signs to their opposite


Adding like terms when there are squared variables as well as single variables in the expression


The next step in understanding distribution.


Two examples of how to distribute


Three examples of adding like terms with both positive and negative coefficients


An introduction to adding like terms to simplify expressions
