Example of adding monomials with different exponents.

Add the following monomials with different exponents

4a5 + 4a4a

Solution.

4a5 + 4a4a =
4a5 + 4a4a1 =
4a5 + 4a4 + 1 =
4a5 + 4a5 = 8a5

Example of adding monomials with different exponents.

Add the following monomials with different exponents

14x3 + x3 + x2

Solution.

14x3 + x3 + x2 =
(14x3 + x3) + x2 =
15x3 + x2

Answer: 15x3 + x2.

Note, we can only add like terms (monomials) and we cannot add unlike terms (monomials).
