Based on the previous response, you should be able to do this one. Like terms are the ones with same variables and exponents.

That is wrong. If the original equation said " = 0", then you can do that. Even then, it would be 8mn = -13m.

OpenStudy (anonymous):

13-5

@djjewla - In your original expression, there are two like terms. One with mn and one with m. So, you gather them up and add or subtract just like you would any arithmetic expression. 13mn+4m-5mn+9m => 13mn - 5mn + 4m + 9m => 8mn + 13m
