These sentences are very similar. I'm going to do one for you, but I would like for you to try the others on your own so you will learn. If you still have problems, repost a question.

 

 Tim got new glasses.  I got new glasses.

 

 Tim and I got new glasses. This combines the two sentences into one with a compound subject.

 

  Tim can see much better.  I can see much better.

Tim and I can see much better.  I did the same thing here.

 

Now, watch this

Tim and I got new glasses. Tim and I can see much better.

 

This is a compound sentence.

Tim and I got new glasses, and we can both see much better.

 

This is a little different.

Tim and I got new glasses and can see much better.

This sentence is a simple sentence with a compound subject, Tim and I, and a compound verb, got and can see. Both verbs have the same subject.

 

Try some others on your own.
