Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1you can use ^ to show exponents 14+2x^2 3x + 5x^2 + 66x better use the equation editor \[ 14+2x^2 3x + 5x^2 + 66x \]

phi

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1when adding you can change the order so you could write it like this \[ 5x^2 + 2x^2 3x6x14+6 \]

phi

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1it should be clear what 14+6 is for the x^2 terms: if you have 5 x^2 terms and add 2 more x^2 terms, how many x^2 terms do you have ?
