## Teaching Simplifies Expression Easily.

- Firstly, Solve the parentheses by adding or subtracting like terms (if any). For example, 3x (x + y) = 3x.x + 3xy.
- Secondly, use the exponent rules to simplify the like terms.
- Now, add or subtract the like terms.
- Then, write the expression that is obtained in the standard form.

Here is an example of solving a problem by simplifying expressions. Let’s consider the given example to learn how to solve a question by simplifying expressions.

Simplify the expression: 4xy - 2x - 3(xy +1) - 2y .

Step 1: Simplify the parentheses by adding or subtracting the like terms.

⇒ 4xy - 2y - 3(xy +1) - 2y

⇒ 4xy - 2y - 3xy - 3 - 2y

Step 2: Use the exponent rules to simplify the like terms.

⇒ 4xy - 3xy - 2y - 2y - 3

⇒ xy - 4y - 3
