Thank you for any help!

• Algebra Combining like terms - ,

The following problems are wrong
3: What's 6-10?
16: You added and you should have subtracted.
18: Completely wrong.
20: You only have one q^2 term, which is -6q^2, and only one choice starts with that..
**If you have something like 6-7x, when written the opposite way it becomes -7x+6. You got several wrong because of this.
