Combining like terms Worksheet

Like terms are terms that have the same powers and variables. Combining like terms is a mathematical process of simplifying an expression or adding and subtracting polynomials. It helps to simplify the algebraic expression. For example, 2x + 4x = 6x. Here, both the like terms are combined to get a result, i.e., 6x. 

 

There are certain tips to follow when combining like terms.

Teaching Questions on Like Terms Easily 

 

  • Firstly, group together all the like terms. 
  • Secondly, add the coefficients of the given groups together to get a total. 
  • Finally, combine the newly formed groups to get an end result. 

Here is an example of solving a problem based on like terms. Let’s consider the given example to learn how to solve a question by combining like terms. 


 

                                Combining the like terms :  4x + 2x = 6x 

                                                                                5y + 2y = 7y    


 

 

 

 

Solve : 4x + 2x 


 

Step 1: Group Together all the like terms. 

So, (4 + 2)x. 


 

Step 2: Add the coefficients of given groups together to get a total. 

(4 + 2)x = (6)x. 


 

Step 3: End Result = 6x.
