# How do you add (-7x^7-6)+(-8x^5-13x^2+16x)?

May 6, 2015

The answer is $- 7 {x}^{7} - 8 {x}^{5} - 13 {x}^{2} + 16 x - 6$.

You can remove the parentheses because the terms inside are as simplified as possible.

$- 7 {x}^{7} - 6 - 8 {x}^{5} - 13 {x}^{2} + 16 x$
$- 7 {x}^{7} - 8 {x}^{5} - 13 {x}^{2} + 16 x - 6$
