**Adding Polynomials**

In the previous lesson, we are discussing about polynomials, Types of Polynomials, Monomials, Binomials, and Polynomials . Now lets learn adding polynomials.

**Add like terms by adding the numerical portion of the terms, following the rules for adding signed numbers.**

(The numerical portion of an expression is called the coefficient.)

**Below are several different ways to attack this example:**

- Using a Horizontal Method to add like terms:

- Using a Vertical Method to add like terms:
