Expanding Brackets: If there are brackets, use the distributive law, multiply terms inside the brackets, and then use the simplification techniques.

Simplification Technique 1 (Using Exponents): Simplify repeated multiplication, e.g., $x \times x \times x = x^3$ or $x \times y \times y = x \times y^2$.

Technique 2 (Collecting Like Terms): Identify and combine terms with the same variables and exponents, e.g., $ab – 2ab + 5ab = 4ab$ by adding the coefficients.
