Can you explain how to Simplify Algebraic Expressions? The easiest way? I have a test over it Friday, and i can't understand it at all!

Can you help with these and explain?

-12z+4(z-9)+30+z

and

4(y-3)+9-3y

Combine like terms.

-12z + 4z - 36 + 30 + z

-7z - 6

Follow the same procedure for the next problem. I'll be glad to check your answer.

I come out and get

4y-12+9-3y

What do I do now? I'm so confused! I don't know it !:(

**Ms. Sue**, Tuesday, February 5, 2013 at 5:34pmNow combine like terms.

4y-12+9-3y

4y - 3y = y

9 - 12 = -3

4y-12+9-3y = y - 3
