Simplify Algebraic Expressions - Distribute and Combine

Watch this brief video. As we have already familiarized ourselves with distribution in subunit 1.2.3 above, this lesson will expand on that to combine like terms. The goal here is to be able to distribute and combine terms that are alike: terms with the same variable or group of variables and exponents. Remember that combining like terms is simply adding or subtracting the numerical coefficients in the like terms.
