Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0An example would be good. So, write two polynomials that you want to subtract and I can show you how to do it.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Let me give you an example here. Suppose you have \(p(x)=3x^22x\), and \(q(x)=x^2+2x1\), and you're asked to find \(p(x)q(x)\).

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0First thing you should do here is to multiply each term of q(x) by \(1\), that means to change the sign of each term. So \(q(x)=x^22x+1\). Now add this to \(p(x)\) by adding the coefficients of each like terms.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I was acutually thinking of somethign like Simplify (x3 + 3x2 + 5x – 4) – (3x3 – 8x2 – 5x + 6)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0OK. First multiply each term of the second parenthesis by 1, and then just add the like terms.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0THANK YOU SOOOOOO MUCH. I have a big test tom. I just need a few more things. I know how to add,multiply, and now subtract ;) polynomials. Now to factor them completely.
