Work Step by Step

Removing the grouping symbols and then combining like terms, the given expression, $ (5r^2-4rt+t^2)+(-6r^2-5rt-t^2)+(-5r^2+4rt-t^2) ,$ simplifies to \begin{array}{l}\require{cancel} 5r^2-4rt+t^2-6r^2-5rt-t^2-5r^2+4rt-t^2 \\\\= (5r^2-6r^2-5r^2)+(-4rt-5rt+4rt)+(t^2-t^2-t^2) \\\\= -6r^2-5rt-t^2 .\end{array}
