How To: Factor and collect like terms

Factor and collect like terms

In this video, the instructor shows how to collect like terms and factorize. When you are given a linear equation, the first thing you do is to try to organize it. Pair up the like terms. Add the numerical coefficients of terms with the same variables. This is called collecting the like terms. In case you see any common factor across all the terms, pull it out and tag it to the parenthesis. In this way, you can factorize the equation. Next, bunch together your like terms and sum them up. The instructor then goes on to solve a couple of problems in order to demonstrate this method.
