How do you simplify the expression: #4g-5g+6+6g#?

1 Answer



Rewrite and add common terms.

Think about GCF when doing this, what would be the highest common factor that can divide those numbers as well as the factor for g?

Thinking about that will indicate that 1 is the GCF but nothing else is common, so factoring will not work cos when 1 divides the expression, it remains the same. So what you have to do is to rewrite the expression.

Instead of #4g-5g+6+6g#, you can rewrite it as #(4g-5g+6g+6)#
then after adding the common term, you will get #5g+6# and that is the answer.
