# Add the Following Algebraic Expression: 2 3 a , 3 5 a , − 6 5 a - Mathematics

$\frac{2}{3}a, \frac{3}{5}a, - \frac{6}{5}a$

#### Solution

To add the like terms, we proceed as follows:

$\frac{2}{3}a + \frac{3}{5}a + \left( - \frac{6}{5}a \right)$

$= \frac{2}{3}a + \frac{3}{5}a - \frac{6}{5}a$

$= \left( \frac{2}{3} + \frac{3}{5} - \frac{6}{5} \right)a ( \text { Distributive law })$

$= \frac{1}{15}a$
