Simplifying Expressions Containing Parentheses 5.1.1.2 Like Terms
Like Terms Terms whose variable parts, including the exponents, are identical are called like terms . Like terms is an appropriate name since terms with identical variable parts and dierent numerical coecients represent
dierent amounts of the same quantity. As long as we are dealing with quantities of the same type we can Simplifying an Algebraic Expression

5.1.1.3 Sample Set A combine them using addition and subtraction.
An algebraic expression can be by combining like terms. Combine the like terms. Example 5.1

+4
Example 5.2
houses houses = 10 houses. 6 and 4 of the same type give 10 of that type. 6 houses + 4 houses + 2 motels = 10 houses + 2 motels . 6 and 4 of the same type give 10 of that type. Thus, we have 10 of one type and 2 of another type. Example 5.3 Suppose we let the letter x represent "house." Then, 6x + 4x = 10x . 6 and 4 of the same type give 10 of that type. 1 This content is available online at < ;. Available for free at Connexions < ;

Exercise 5.1.1.1 Like terms with the same numerical coecient represent equal amounts of the same quantity. (Solution on p. 312.) Like terms with dierent numerical coecients represent . 5.1.1.5 Combining Like Terms
Since like terms represent amounts of the same quantity, they may be combined, that is, like terms may be
added together. 5.1.1.6 Sample Set B
Simplify each of the following polynomials by combining like terms. Example 5.5 2x + 5x + 3x.
2x's, then 5 more,
2x + 5x + 3x = 10x There are then 3 more. This makes a total of 10x's. Example 5.6
7x + 8y − 3x.
7x's, we From lose 3x's. This makes 4x's. The 8y 's represent a quantity dierent from the x's and therefore will not combine with them. 7x + 8y − 3x = 4x + 8y Example 5.7 4a3 − 2a2 + 8a3 + a2 − 2a3 .
4a3 , 8a3 , and −2a3 represent quantities of the same type.
4a3 + 8a3 − 2a3 = 10a3
−2a2 and a2 represent quantities of the same type.
−2a2 + a2 = −a2
Thus, 4a3 − 2a2 + 8a3 + a2 − 2a3 = 10a3 − a2 5.1.1.7 Practice Set B

Simplifying Expressions Containing Parentheses When parentheses occur in expressions, they must be removed before the expression can be simplied. Distributive Property Parentheses can be removed using the distributive property. 5.1.1.9 Sample Set C
Example 5.8 Simplify each of the following expressions by using the distributive property and combining like terms. Example 5.9
4x + 9 x2 − 6x − 2 + 5
2 4x + 9x − 54x − 18 + 5 Remove parentheses.
Combine like terms. 2 −50x + 9x − 13
By convention, the terms in an expression are placed in descending order with the highest
degree term appearing rst. Numerical terms are placed at the right end of the expression. The
commutative property of addition allows us to change the order of the terms. 9x2 − 50x − 13 Example 5.10 2 + 2 [5 + 4 (1 + a)]
Eliminate the innermost set of parentheses rst. 2 + 2 [5 + 4 + 4a]
By the order of operations, simplify inside the parentheses before multiplying (by the 2). 2 + 2 [9 + 4a] Remove this set of parentheses. 2 + 18 + 8a Combine like terms. 20 + 8a Write in descending order. 8a + 20 Example 5.11 x (x − 3) + 6x (2x + 3)

8 In Section here repeated
exponential notation we were reminded that multiplication is a description for repeated addition. question is Is there a description for Factors describes repeated multiplication is multiplication? The answer is yes. . In multiplication, the numbers being multiplied together are called A natural The notation that factors . In repeated multiplication, all the factors are the same. In nonrepeated multiplication, none of the factors are the same. For example, Example 5.12 18 · 18 · 18 · 18 Repeated multiplication of 18. All four factors, x·x·x·x·x Repeated multiplication of x. All ve factors, 3·7·a Nonrepeated multiplication. None of the factors are the same. superscript on the factor that is repeated
Exponential Notation 18, are the same. x, are the same. exponent Exponential notation is used to show repeated multiplication of the same factor. The notation consists of
using a If x is any real number and n . The superscript is called an . is a natural number, then xn = |x · x · {z
x · ... · x}
n factors of x An exponent records the number of identical factors in a multiplication.
Note that the denition for exponential notation only has meaning for natural number exponents. We
will extend this notation to include other numbers as exponents later. 5.1.2.3 Sample Set A
Example 5.13 7 · 7 · 7 · 7 · 7 · 7 = 76 .
The repeated factor is 7. The exponent 6 records the fact that 7 appears 6 times in the multiplication. Example 5.14 x · x · x · x = x4 .
The repeated factor is x. The exponent 4 records the fact that x appears 4 times in the multiplication. Example 5.15 (2y) (2y) (2y) = (2y) 3 . The repeated factor is 2y . The exponent 3 records the fact that the factor 2y appears 3 times in the multiplication. Example 5.16
2yyy = 2y 3 . The repeated factor is y. The exponent 3 records the fact that the factor y appears 3 times in the multiplication. Example 5.17 2 3 (a + b) (a + b) (a − b) (a − b) (a − b) = (a + b) (a − b) .
The repeated factors are (a + b) and (a − b), (a + b) appearing 2 times and (a − b) appearing 3 times. 8 "Basic Properties of Real Numbers: Properties of the Real Numbers" < ; Available for free at Connexions < ; 266 CHAPTER 5. CHAPTER 5: EXPONENTS AND POLYNOMIALS 5.1.2.4 Practice Set A

A natural question is "Why are geometric terms appearing in the exponent expression?" The answer for x3 is this: x3 means x · x · x. In geometry, the volume of a rectangular box is found by multiplying the length by the width by the depth.
