Example 1
Let's find the sum of the following two polynomials (3y^{5} − 2y + y^{4} + 2y^{3} + 5) and (2y^{5} + 3y^{3} + 2+ 7) Subtracting PolynomialsExample 2Let's find the difference of the same two polynomials (3y^{5} − 2y + y^{4} + 2y^{3} + 5) and (2y^{5} + 3y^{3} + 2+ 7) Practice Problems
Problem 1 ) Add the following polynomials:
(x^{3}+ 5x + 3x^{2} +2) and (4x^{3} + 3x^{2}+ 14)
First, remember to rewrite each polynomial in standard form, line up the columns and add the like terms.
(2x^{3}+ 5x^{4} + 3x^{2} +12) and (7x^{3} + 4x^{2}+ 3)
First, remember to rewrite each polynomial in standard form, line up the columns and add the like terms.
(3x^{2}+ 2x^{3}+ 12x^{7} + 12)  ( 4x^{2}+ 3  11x^{3} )
First, remember to rewrite each polynomial in standard form, line up the columns and add the like terms.
Problem 4 ) Add following polynomials: (2x^{8} + 6x^{7}+ 3x^{9} + 5) + ( 5x^{2} + 4 + 9x^{3} )
