Simplify 4x + 3y 2x + 4y = 2x + 7y Never, NEVER, combine xs and ys or constant terms with variable terms. 2x + 7y 9xy and 3a + 6 9a. www.GuarinoLand.com Copyright by Holt, Rinehart and Winston.

Combining Like Terms TRY THESE 1) 3q + 7q = 10q Your welcome 2) 4x + 8y 10x + 3y = 4x + 8y 10x + 3y = 6x + 11y Review Again 3 + 5x = 3 + 5x 8x www.GuarinoLand.com 3(5x) = 15x Copyright by Holt, Rinehart and Winston. All Rights Reserved. Combining Like Terms

In algebraic terms, find the perimeter of the following shape. 4x + 3y Key Skills 3x 2y 3x 2y 2x To find the perimeter, add the sides together. P = 3x 2y + 2x + 3x 2y + 4x + 3y = 12x y What is the perimeter if x = 5 and y = 8? P = 12(5) 8 = 52 www.GuarinoLand.com Copyright by Holt, Rinehart and Winston. All Rights Reserved.

Find the perimeter of the following shape when x = 2. TRY THIS 5x + y 5x + y 6x 2y To find the perimeter, add the sides together. P = 5x + y + 5x + y + 6x 2y = 16x = 32 Does the value of y matter in this problem? Obviously Not! www.GuarinoLand.com Copyright by Holt, Rinehart and Winston. All Rights Reserved. Combining Like Terms TRY A farmer has two rectangular fields. THIS He wants to put a fence around both. In algebraic

terms, how much fence would he need? 3x 6 2x + 5 Field 2 4 3 Field 1 P1 = 3 + 3 + 2x + 5 + 2x + 5 P1 = 4x + 16 Ptotal = 4x + 16 + 6x 4 P2 = 4 + 4 + 3x 6 + 3x 6 P2 = 6x 4 How much fence would the farmer need if x = 5? Ptotal = 10x + 12

Ptotal = 10(5) + 12 www.GuarinoLand.com Ptotal = 62 Copyright by Holt, Rinehart and Winston. All Rights Reserved. Combining Like Terms Your Turn 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7.

8. 7t 4t = 24 6y 8y y = 27 -3s + 8s 10s = 35 18a 14a = 36 -5x + 7x 10x = 48 10z + 2z 13z = 45 -12r + 15r = 21 -3b 5b 2b = 80 www.GuarinoLand.com Copyright by Holt, Rinehart and Winston. All Rights Reserved.
