I. Arrange and add the monomials
(i) –6xyz and 8xyz
(ii) 5a2b2 and 9a2b2
(iii) 5a5, and -3a5

Solution:

(i) Given monomials are –6xyz and 8xyz
=(-6xyz)+(8xyz)
=-6xyz+8xyz
=2xyz
Hence, By adding –6xyz and 8xyz we get 2xyz.
(ii) Given monomials are 5a2b2 and 9a2b2
=5a2b2 + 9a2b2
= 14 a2b2
Hence, By adding 5a2b2 and 9a2b2 we get 14 a2b2 .
(iii) Given monomials are 5a5, and -3a5
=5a5+(-3a5)
=5a5-3a5
=2a 5
Hence, By adding 5a5 and -3a5 we get 2a 5.

II. Arrange and add the binomials:
(i) 6m + 8n and 4m + 2n
(ii) 17a -5b and -3a+ 15b

Solution:

(i) Given binomials are 6m + 8n and 4m + 2n
Arrange the like terms and then add,
=6m+4m+8n+2n
=10m+10n
Hence, By adding the binomials 6m + 8n and 4m + 2n we get 10m+10n.
(ii) Given binomials are 17a -5b and -3a+ 15b
Arrange the like terms and then add,
=17a-3a-5b+15b
=14a+10b

Solution:

(i) Given trinomials are 3x + 2y – z and 14x – 7y + 2z
Arrange the like terms and then add,
=3x+14x+2y-7y-z+2z
=17x-5y+z
Hence, By adding the trinomials 3x + 2y – z and 14x – 7y + 2z we get 17x-5y+z.
(ii) Given trinomials are 5a2 + 3ab + 2b2 and 10a2 – 8b2 – 5ab
Arrange the like terms and then add,
