In algebra, combining like terms involves simplifying expressions by grouping together terms that have the same variable and then performing the necessary operations.
Let's break down the expression "x+x+x+x" and simplify it step by step:
Here, each term is x, and there are four of them. To simplify, you can add them together:
Combine the coefficients (the numbers in front of x):
Simplify the sum:
So, x+x+x+x simplifies to 4x. This process involves recognizing like terms (terms with the same variable, in this case, x) and combining them to express the simplified form of the expression.
