Hi Magnacro, well done for taking the first step to look for help with your algebra problem! To add like terms, try to think of each letter (x, y) as different objects and visualise adding them together. For example: x + 2y + 2x. If we say x = cats and y = dogs. We can only combine all the cats together and all the dogs together. So, in this example, we would have 1 cat (x) + 2 more cats (2x) and 2 dogs (2y). So the final answer would be 3 cats and 2 dogs (3x +2y).I hope this helps, and please let me know if I can help you further!

Hi magnacro,To add like terms- try and understand following example-2X + 3Y + 4X − 5Y-- the like terms are 2X and 4X, 3Y and −5Y.What do we do with like terms? We add, or combine, them:2X + 3Y + 4X − 5Y = 6X − 2Y.That is, we add their coefficients(X, Y). The order of the terms does not matter.I hope this helps. Please let me know If I can assist you further.
