Equivalent expressions of polynomials

A polynomial may contain multiple terms. The variable terms have a coefficient and a variable. Terms with the same variables are called like terms, and they can be combined together. It allows us to write equivalent expressions of polynomials with more or less terms.


  • 1.
    Identify the coefficient and the number of variables for each expression.
  • 2.
    Find the like terms.
    • c)
      15y       23y - 23y       13y2z13{y^2}z       - 10y       x2y{x^2}y
  • 3.
    Combine like terms.
  • 4.
    4. Write an equivalent expression with seven terms for each polynomial.
