1. Rearrange the terms, grouping like terms

5m - 2m +3k + 5k

2. Combine like terms:

(5 - 2)m + (3 + 5)k     (apply the distributive property)

3m + 8k

And you're done! :)

The expression can be simplified by combining like terms.



So, the expression would now read:  3m+8k.

If there is nothing else specified with this problem you are finished.
