#### Explanation:

first, rearrange the terms so that like terms (ones with the same variable [and raised to the same power, but that doesn't apply here]) are next to one another.

we don't need to show the + sign in from of the g, because we assume it's positive unless there's a - sign

next, combine the like terms

finally, put the two combined terms together

and that's your answer
