For Problems 27-36, simplify each of the algebraic expressions by combining similar terms. − 2 3 x 2 y − ( − 3 4 x 2 y ) − 5 12 x 2 y − 2 x 2 y

To determine

To simplify:

The given algebraic expression by combining similar terms.

Explanation

Given:

The algebraic expression 23x2y(34x2y)512x2y2x2y.

Approach:

To simplify an expression by combining like terms, perform the steps below:-

a) Group the like terms.

b) Simplify the like terms and hence the expression.

Calculation:

Grouping the like terms and writing in positive terms in given expression, we get

23x2y(34x2y)512x2y2x2y=(23x2y)+(34x2y)+(512x2y)+(2x2y)

The LCD is 12.

Translating into equivalent fraction, we get

(23x2y)+(34x2y)+(512x2y)+(2x2y)=(812x2y)+
