Add polynomials using algebraic tiles

and by combining like terms


Explore P = 2L + 2W
The G7-JVV students of
Lopez NCHS needs to
fence their rectangular
garden. They know that
its length is 1 meter
longer than its width.
What is the perimeter W=x
of the lot if its width is:
L = x +1
a. 4m?
b. 10m?
c. x meters?
We can show the process of adding polynomials visually using algebra
tiles. Models of algebra tiles are shown below with their
corresponding signs.

2 2
1 -1

A pair of tiles that add up to zero is called a zero pair e.g. 1 -1


Add 2 2 + + 1 3 2 3

2 2 2 2 2 -

1 -1 -1 -1

Group similar tiles together and remove the zero pair.

2 2 2 2 2

1 -1 -1 -1

0 2 0 0 2
The remaining tiles model the expression 2 2.
This is the sum of the two expressions.

-1 -1 or 2 2

(2 2 3 + 2) + ( 2 + 2)
To add polynomials, simply combine like
terms. To combine like terms, get the sum
of the numerical coefficients and annex the
same literal coefficients.
Add 4 3 + 2 and (5 + 8 10) Steps in adding polynomials
by combining like terms
Solution:
4 3 + 2 + 5 + 8 10 Step 1:
=4 3 + 2 + 5 + 8 10 Remove the parentheses.
= 4 + 5 + (3 + 8) + (2 10)
Step 2:
= 4 + 5 + 3 + 8 + 2 10
Combine like terms.
=9 + 5 8
Add (8 3 3 2 + 1) 3( 2 + 2 5)

2 2
= (8 3 + 1) + 3( + 2 5)
3 2 2
= 8 3 + 1 + 3 + 6 15
= 8 3 + 3 2 + 3 2 + + 6 + (1 15)
= 8 3 +(3 + 3) 2 + 1 + 6 + 1 15
= 8 3 +7 16

The beauty of mathematics lies in its ability
to discipline the mind.
In what ways is mental discipline necessary
in performing operations on polynomials?
