Is it really that hard to add like terms? Do I really need to simplify it so much that a 1st grader can understand it? Apparently. The right side of my photos is getting cut off and I’m not sure how to fix it, but you’ll get the idea…
2 pears + 1 pepper + 2 yogurts + 1 apple + 4 clementines + 2 apples + 3 yogurts + 3 pears + 1 pepper = ?
5 pears + 2 peppers + 3 apples + 4 clementines + 5 yogurts
2p + e + 2y + a + 4c + 2a + 3y + 3p + e
= 5p + 2e + 3a + 4c + 5y
The order doesn’t matter.
Really? Is it that hard?
