Combine like terms in a sum term
A term is made up of sums of multiples of powers of variables.
Like terms have to be combined to get the least number of terms possible.
An upper limit may be specified to the greatest possible exponent, so that terms with no exponents beyond one can be presented as a problem.
The number of terms and the number of different variables is selectable.
The number of problems can be chosen.
