  • To simplify an algebraic you must make the expression so that it cannot be changed anymore and no like terms remain. For example if we are simplifying –17 – t – (t + 3) we first make it all addition.  The expression is now -17+(-t)+(-(t+3)).  First, you look for like terms.  The like terms are -t, and since the expression in parentheses is now negative, the t is also now negative which means another like term is -t.  Now we have -2t.  Then we add the numbers like normal. The answer is now -20-2t or -20+(-2t).
