Teaching Geometry Combining Like Terms Easily


  • Firstly, Group together the like terms i.e. terms having the same variable and exponent. 


  • Secondly, Add the coefficients of each group together. This will provide you with a total. 


  • Finally, you can combine all the newly formed groups to get the required result. 


Like Terms: 

. 4y + 2y.         

. 2x - 3x.

. 12r - 10 r.







Here is an example to solve a question on combining like terms. Let us consider the given example to understand the concept of combining like terms. 


Q. Solve: 2x + 3 + 3x + 5 


Step 1: Group together all the like terms. 

Here, 2x and 3x are like terms. 


So, 2x + 3...
