## Enter Terms

Combine like terms for:

(2x + 3y)(5a + 6b)

Simplify by removing parentheses
Remove the parentheses since no simplification is required
2x + 3y5a + 6b

##### Evaluate the x terms:

2x  ← There is only one x term

##### Evaluate the y5 terms:

3y5  ← There is only one y5 term

##### Evaluate the a terms:

a  ← There is only one a term

##### Evaluate the b terms:

6b  ← There is only one b term

##### Combine like terms

2x + 3y + a + 6b

Analyze the 4 terms of the polynomial 2x + 3y + a + 6b

##### Analyze Term 1

Term 1 is 2x

Our coefficient/constant is 2
Our variable piece is x
No exponent exists for this term

##### Analyze Term 2

Term 2 is 3y

Our coefficient/constant is 3
Our variable piece is y
No exponent exists for this term

##### Analyze Term 3

Term 3 is a

Since there is no coefficient
our coefficient is 1
Our variable piece is a
No exponent exists for this term

##### Analyze Term 4

Term 4 is 6b

Our coefficient/constant is 6
Our variable piece is b
No exponent exists for this term

##### Determine the Degree of the Polynomial:

Our coefficient/constant is 2
Our variable piece is x
No exponent exists for this term
Our coefficient/constant is 3
Our variable piece is y
No exponent exists for this term
Since there is no coefficient
our coefficient is 1
Our variable piece is a
No exponent exists for this term
Our coefficient/constant is 6
Our variable piece is b
No exponent exists for this term
