Accepted Solution

A:

To combine like terms in the expression:
2y^3 - 4x^2 - 4 - 1 + 3x^2 - 3y^3 - y^3
First, let's group the like terms together:
(2y^3 - 3y^3 - y^3) + (3x^2 - 4x^2) + (-4 - 1)
Combining the like terms within each group, we have:
-2y^3 + (-x^2) + (-5)
So, the expression with like terms combined is:
$$ -2y^3-x^2-5 $$
