$a. 3y$ $b. 2y²$ $c. -3y$ $d. 2y²$

Work Step by Step

a. When adding like terms you add the coefficients $2+1=3$. b. When multiplying monomials you multiply the coefficients and the variables, then you multiply those two products $2\times1=2$ & $(y)\times(y)=y²$. c. Same as a. $-2+-1=-3$ d. Same as b. $-2\times-1=2$ & $(y)\times(y)=y²$
