Like terms are terms with the same variables raised to the same powers.

8x^5 - 7x^9-7x^5+ 8x^9

First groupe like terms and arrange in descending order

= 8x^9-7x^9 + 8x^5-7x^5

Now the simplification

=x^9 + x^5

Try to start a new post for a new question. Sometimes these piggy-backed questions get forgotten.

I will answer it this time.

R is a function of x. So substitute 135 for x to get

R=314.28*135 - 0.1*135²
