**expression is in simplest form when**it is easiest to use.## How do you simplify expression?

**To**

**simplify**any algebraic**expression**, the following are the basic rules and steps:- Remove any grouping symbol such as brackets and parentheses by multiplying factors.

**expression**in its**simplest form**, which is called simplifying an**expression**. like terms Like terms contain the same variable or variables.## What is a polynomial in simplest form?

To simplify a

**polynomial**, we have to do two things: 1) combine like terms, and 2) rearrange the terms so that they’re written in descending order of exponent. For example, you can add 1 “x-squared” to 2 “x-squareds” and get 3 “x-squareds”, but 1 “x-squared” plus an “x” can’t be combined because they’re not like terms.## Is the expression 3x 2x − 4 in simplest form?

**3x**+

**2x**–

**4 in simplest form**is 5x-

**4**.
