# Combining like terms Worksheet

## 5 problems

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.

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.
