Solmyr Group Title

Find the difference of (−5x2 − 4x3 − 3) − (9x3 + 3x − 8x2). Be sure to show all of your work in a neat and organized fashion. Use the ^ (shift 6) symbol to show an exponent. For example, x squared can be written as x^2.

    yes your answer is right but your method is fishy.. any go on :) i would say -5x^2--8x^2 = -5x^2+8x^2=3x^2

    (5x)^2= 5^2x^2=25x^2 5x^2 is just 5x^2 :) next time you should write your question with the exponents to avoid complications :)
