Addition

**Addition of algebraic expressions**

Addition of algebraic expressions is achieved by combining like terms.

Add P(x)= 3x^{5} + 2x^{3} - 5x^{2} + 6 to Q(x) = 8x^{3} + 3x^{2} - x - 4

The resulting polynomial is: P(x) + Q(x)= 3x^{5} + 10x^{3} - 2x^{2} - x + 2

Let's see the combinations of like terms:

2x^{3} + 8x^{3} = 10x^{3}

-5x^{2} + 3x^{2} = -2x^{3}

6 - 4 = 2
