Practice the questions given in the worksheet on adding and subtracting like terms. The questions are based on adding and subtracting like terms we need to collect different groups of like terms and then we need to find the sum and the difference of like terms in each group.

**1. Add the following
terms: **

(i) 5a, -3a, -7a and 8a

(ii) 4x(iii) 4abc, -7abc, -9abc and 5abc

(iv) 4x

(v) -7a

(vi) 9xy, -2xy, 6xy, -4ay and xy

(vii) 12mn, -16mn, mn, - 7mn and 3mn

(viii) -6abz, 10abz, -3abz and 9abz

**2. Subtract the following terms:**

(i) 10a from 15a

(ii) 2x from -12x

(iii) 5x(iii) 18z

(iv) -14x

(v) 16ab from 11ab

(vi) 17x

(vii) m^4n

(viii) -9abxy from 2abxy

**3. Find the sum of:**

(i) 3a, 11a, a and 32a

(ii) -3x, -7x, -5x and 11x

(iii) 7ab, 2ab, -3ab, -5ab and ab

(iv) 5s, 2s, -3s, -s, -5s and s

(v) 5m, -3m, -7m, -21m and 15m

**4. Simplify by
combining like terms:**

(ii) 4x

(iii) -13a

(iv) m

(v) -8p

(vi) 4a - 3b + 6c + 8a + 8b - 4c

(vii) p - 4q - 7r + 4r + 9p – 7q -3r + p - 5q

(viii) pq + 2qr – 3rp + 5pq + 6rp – 2qr + 8pq – 5qr + 3rp - 3rp

Answers for the worksheet on adding and subtracting like terms are given below to check the exact answers of the above simplification.

**Answers:**

**1. **(i) 3a

(iii) -7abc

(iv) - x

(v) -12a

(vi) 10xy

(vii) -7mn

(viii) 10abz

**2. **(i) 5a

(ii) -14x

(iii) 4x(iii) -8z

(iv) 16x

(v) -5ab

(vi) -2x
