# How do you combine #(8c^2 - 2c) + (2c^2 + 3c)#?

See a solution process below:

First, remove all of the terms from parenthesis. Be careful to handle the signs of each individual term correctly:

Next, group like terms:

Now, combine like terms:

To combine the given expressions, you first add the coefficients of the same degree terms. So, for the terms with c^2, you add 8c^2 and 2c^2 to get 10c^2. Then, for the terms with just c, you add -2c and 3c to get 1c or simply c. Therefore, the simplified expression is 10c^2 + c.
