# Thread: Simplifying adding integers with the same base- help!

1. ## Simplifying adding integers with the same base- help!

I need some help with hoe to simplify the following expression, or if it is possible at all:

6p^5+2p^2

Thanks for your time. It is for a test on Wednesday.

2. ## Re: Simplifying adding integers with the same base- help!

$2p^2(3p^3+1)$

Hi,
do you will make the expression in form of product?
6p^5+2p^2=2p^2*(3p^3+1)
