Simplify means to
combine like terms and
complete all operations

2x + 2x + 3x = 7x

## Terms in an expression are

like terms if they have identical
variable parts.
You can combine terms that are
alike.
http://www.mathslideshows.com

## To look at combining like terms we

are going to use ALGEBRA TILES!
Algebra Tiles help us to visualize
what each term represents.

Notice that we write the largest shape first, then
the medium size, then the smallest. We write them
in order from largest to smallest.

Algebra Tiles
You can only combine terms that are alike, or
terms that have the same variable.

Algebra Tiles
You are going to get your own set of
algebra tiles to use.
Take them out of the bag and put them
on your desk. The red should be on
the bottom.

## Since no terms are alike, we cant combine

2
anything, so my answer is x + 3
http://www.mathslideshows.com

Algebra Tiles
Show me x +3 + 2x with your tiles

## We can combine the terms that are alike.

So my answer is is 3x + 3
http://www.mathslideshows.com

Algebra Tiles
Show me 3x + 2 + x + 4 with your tiles

## We can combine the terms that are alike. So

my answer is is 4x + 6

## Try these problems with your algebra tiles. Combine

like terms. Give me a thumbs up when you know the

1) 2x + 4 + 4x + 1

2) 2x +2x + 3 + x + 1

= 3x + 2x + 4
= 4x +3x+2
