# How do you add (2w-9)+(4w-5)?

Jun 23, 2018

$6 w - 14$

#### Explanation:

Being mindful of the signs, we can combine our like terms.

$\textcolor{b l u e}{2 w + 4 w} \textcolor{red}{- 9 - 5}$

We can combine the blue terms to get

$\textcolor{b l u e}{6 w}$

and the red terms to get

$\textcolor{red}{- 14}$

Together, we have

$6 w - 14$

Hope this helps!
