a. 2x b. x² c. -2x d. x²

Work Step by Step

a. When adding like terms you add the coefficients $1+1=2$. b. When multiplying monomials you multiply the coefficients and the variables, then you multiply those two products $1\times1=1$ & $(x)\times(x)=x²$. c. Same as a. $-1+-1=-2$ d. Same as b. $-1\times-1=1$ & $(x)\times(x)=x²$
