Adding polynomials

Add:     \[ (-9 + 3n^6 + 3n^5) + (2n^6 + 5n^5 + 6) \]

Number: 
To add these polynomials, you need to add the "like" terms. Here are the step-by-step solution:

=> (
9+3n6+3n5)+(2n6+5n5+6)

 9+3n6+3n5 + 2n6+5n5+6  (dropping the parentheses)

 9+6 +3n5 +5n5 + 2n6+3n6(grouping like terms)

( 9+6) +(3n5 +5n5 ) + (2n6+3n6)

(-3 ) + (
8n5) + (5n6) (combining LIKE terms)


-3  + 8n5 + 5n6  (Answer)
