# Add the Following Algebraic Expression: 11 2 X Y + 12 5 Y + 13 7 X , − 11 2 Y − 12 5 X − 13 7 X Y - Mathematics

$\frac{11}{2}xy + \frac{12}{5}y + \frac{13}{7}x, - \frac{11}{2}y - \frac{12}{5}x - \frac{13}{7}xy$

#### Solution

To add, we proceed as follows:

$\left( \frac{11}{2}xy + \frac{12}{5}y + \frac{13}{7}x \right) + \left( - \frac{11}{2}y - \frac{12}{5}x - \frac{13}{7}xy \right)$

$= \frac{11}{2}xy + \frac{12}{5}y + \frac{13}{7}x - \frac{11}{2}y - \frac{12}{5}x - \frac{13}{7}xy$

$= \frac{11}{2}xy - \frac{13}{7}xy + \frac{12}{5}y - \frac{11}{2}y + \frac{13}{7}x - \frac{12}{5}x ( \text { Collecting like terms })$

$= \frac{51}{14}xy - \frac{31}{10}y - \frac{19}{35}x (\text { Combining like terms })$
