The grouping method of factoring can still be used when only some of the terms share a common factor A True B False

The sum or difference of p and q is the of the x-term in the trinomial

When can you add or subtract coefficients?

You can add and subtract coefficients when they occur in like terms, which means they have the same variable. 2x + 3x = 5x (This addition can take place because all of the variables are x, and are therefore like terms.) and 5y - 2y = 3y (This subtraction can take place because all of the variables are y, and are therefore like terms.) However, if the variables differ, they are unlike terms, and you cannot add or subtract the coefficients. For example: 2a + 3b cannot be added because a and b are different variables, and therefore unlike terms. 3c - 2d cannot occur because c and d are different variables, and therefore unlike terms..
