How to add similar monomials?

### Rule of adding of similar monomials

Adding similar monomials rule

When adding similar monomials we only add the coefficients of the monomials.

### Examples of addition of similar monomials

Example of adding of similar monomials.

8d + 2d

Solution.

The coefficients of the monomials are 8 and 2.

8d + 2d = 10d

Example of adding of similar monomials.

Add the following monomials

10.4a + 0.6a

Solution.

The coefficients of the monomials are 10.4 and 0.6.

10.4a + 0.6a = 11a

Example of adding of similar monomials.

3xz + 3.5xz

Solution.

The coefficients of the monomials are 3 and 3.5.

3xz + 3.5xz = 6.5xz

Example of adding of similar monomials.

Add the following monomials

4x3 + 3x3 + 2x2

Solution.

Are all these three terms similar monomials? No, they are not.

Only the two monomials 4x3 and 3x3 are similar monomials.

The coefficients of the similar monomials are 4 and 3.

4x3 + 3x3 + 2x2 =
7x3 + 2x2

The answer: 7x3 + 2x2.
