Textbook Problem

In Exercises 1 to 6, simplify by combining similar terms. ( 2 x + 3 ) + ( 3 x + 5 )

To determine

To simplify:

(2x+3)+(3x+5)

Explanation

Forms of the Distributive Axiom:

The Distributive Axiom distributes multiplication over addition:

a(b+c)=ab+acab+ac=a(b+c)

The Distributive Axiom distributes multiplication over subtraction:

a(bc)=abacabac=a(bc)

Calculation:

Given: (2x+3)+(3x+5)

Now we have to simplify by combining similar terms.

(2x+3)+(3x+5)=2x+3+3x+5Now combine like terms=(2
