# How do you simplify n+5n?

Mar 19, 2018

The answer is $6 n$.

#### Explanation:

$n + 5 n$

All you have to do is combine the terms, since they are like terms.

There is actually a $1$ in front of the first term. But since it's a 1, we don't usually write it.

$1 n + 5 n$

Just add $1 + 5$ and then put $n$.

$1 n + 5 n = 6 n$

So, $n + 5 n = 6 n$.
