4.3 Adding and subtracting polynomials

Adding and subtracting polynomials

Adding polynomials is basically combining the like terms together. Like terms are the terms with the same variables and degree. Subtracting polynomials is very similar to that, but you will need to reverse the sign of each term to get rid of the like terms.
