Simplify two 𝑠 plus one plus three 𝑠 plus two.
00:00:08.850 --> 00:00:14.170
In order to simplify this expression, we need to group or collect the like terms.
00:00:14.600 --> 00:00:20.340
We need to group the two 𝑠 and the three 𝑠 and the positive one and positive two.
00:00:21.580 --> 00:00:26.170
The sign in between the two parentheses or brackets is an addition sign.
00:00:26.650 --> 00:00:30.040
Therefore, we need to add two 𝑠 and three 𝑠.
00:00:31.080 --> 00:00:34.400
Two 𝑠 plus three 𝑠 is equal to five 𝑠.
00:00:35.740 --> 00:00:39.540
We also need to add positive one and positive two.
00:00:40.420 --> 00:00:45.810
Positive one plus positive two is equal to three or positive three.
00:00:47.140 --> 00:00:55.400
This means that the simplified expression for two 𝑠 plus one plus three 𝑠 plus two is five 𝑠 plus three.
