How do you simplify #3a + 5a +5p#?
Without = this is your solution. Add the values of a. (If it was 8a+6p, you would then find a common factor of 2 in both and simplify from there. That would look like: 2 (4a+3p). That may help you on a future algebra problem...good luck!
To simplify this, we have to combine like terms. First, let's color code the like terms:
As you can see,
Now, we still have
Hope this helps!
