Michael had three 𝑥 plus six coins and gave two 𝑥 plus three coins to James.
00:00:09.840 --> 00:00:12.680
How many coins does Michael have left?
00:00:14.000 --> 00:00:20.160
In order to solve this problem, we need to subtract two 𝑥 plus three from three 𝑥 plus six.
00:00:20.840 --> 00:00:29.520
We can do this by grouping or collecting the like terms: three 𝑥 minus two 𝑥 and six minus three.
00:00:30.040 --> 00:00:36.680
Three 𝑥 minus two 𝑥 is equal to 𝑥 and six minus three is equal to three.
00:00:37.320 --> 00:00:47.440
This means that after Michael gave two 𝑥 plus three coins to James, he has 𝑥 plus three coins left.
