The commutative property of addition allows reordering of the terms in a given algebraic expression so like terms can be grouped together then combined to produce an algebraic expression equivalent to the first one. Note that only like terms or similar terms can be combined together by simply adding their numerical coefficients and affixing the common literal coefficient. This is very useful when simplifying algebraic expressions.
