Flashcard 5 - Mathematics Flashcard Set for the PRAXIS Test


The correct answer is:

James tried to combine the unlike terms \(x^{2}\) and \(2x\) by adding.


Unlike terms cannot be added or subtracted. The terms are unlike because the variable is raised to a different power in each. The correct answer is \(x^{2} + 2x -5\).
