The cardboard used in the construction of the box shown in the accompanying figure has an area of x y + y z + x z + x z + y z + x y . Simplify this expression for the total area of the cardboard. To determine

To find:

The simplified expression for the total area of the cardboard.

Explanation

1) Like terms are terms that contain exactly the same variables raised to exactly the same powers.

2) Two like terms can be added or subtracted in any polynomial.

Calculation:

It is given that the total area of the cardboard is xy+yz+xz+xz+yz+xy.

Add like terms in xy+yz+xz+xz+yz+xy.

xy+yz+xz+xz+yz+xy=(
