# Need help with combining like terms

How do I figure this out...

11+5t^2+t+6t

If anyone can help I would really appreciate it.

I helped BELOW!!!LOL

See the answer below which I posted as a correction to the answer provided by Margie and Dr Phil.

The correct answer to this post

is 5t^2 + 7t + 11 but note the number was -11 in your post below. .

## To combine like terms, you need to identify the terms that have the same variable raised to the same power. In the expression 11 + 5t^2 + t + 6t, the like terms are 5t^2, t, and 6t.

Step 1: Start by combining the like terms with the same variable raised to the same power. In this case, we have 5t^2 + t + 6t.

Step 2: Combine the coefficients of these like terms. The coefficient of t^2 is 5, the coefficient of t is 1, and the coefficient of t is 6.

Step 3: Add the coefficients together to get the final result. The final expression becomes 5t^2 + 7t.

So the simplified expression after combining like terms is 5t^2 + 7t + 11.
