To add or subtract terms with exponents, both the base and the exponent must be the same. If the base and the exponent are the same, add or subtract the coefficients and retain the base and exponent. For example, 3x^{2} + 2x^{2} = 5x^{2} and 3x^{2} - 2x^{2} = x^{2} but x^{2} + x^{4} and x^{4} - x^{2} cannot be combined.

An integer is any whole number, including zero. An integer can be either positive or negative. Examples include -77, -1, 0, 55, 119.

The least common multiple (LCM) is the smallest positive integer that is a multiple of two or more integers.

To multiply fractions, multiply the numerators together and then multiply the denominators together. To divide fractions, invert the second fraction (get the reciprocal) and multiply it by the first.

Percentages are ratios of an amount compared to 100. The percent change of an old to new value is equal to 100% x \({ new - old \over old }\).
