   (3x2 + 9x - 1) + (-5x2 + 6x - 10)

 

We can get rid of the parenthesees since there is only addition between them.

=  3x2 + 9x - 1 + -5x2 + 6x - 10

 

Now we can rearrange the terms so like terms are together.

=  3x2 - 5x2 + 9x + 6x - 1 - 10

 

Combine like terms. Just like  3 apples - 5 apples = -2 apples ....so does  3x2 - 5x2 = -2x2

=      -2x2     +  15x        - 11
