This line can be constructed as follows. Arbitrarily select a point on a straight line to represent the number 0. This point is called the origin. If the line is horizontal, then a point at a convenient distance to the right of the origin is chosen to represent the number 1. This determines the scale for the number line. Each positive real number lies at an appropriate distance to the right of the origin, and each negative real number lies at an appropriate distance to the left of the origin (Figure 1).

Like terms may be combined by adding or subtracting their numerical coefficients. For example, 3x ϩ 7x ϭ 10x and 1 7 ᎏᎏxy ϩ 3xy ϭ ᎏᎏxy 2 2 The distributive property of the real number system, ab ϩ ac ϭ a(b ϩ c) is used to justify this procedure. To add or subtract two or more algebraic expressions, first remove the parentheses and then combine like terms. The resulting expression is written in order of decreasing degree from left to right. * EXAMPLE 1 a.
