Can someone give me a quick refresher on how to do this kind of problem? Simplify (2m3 + 3m2 − 7m) − (5m3 − 9m).

You are subtracting two polynomials. You rewrite the first polynomial as it is just simply dropping the parentheses. To take care of the subtraction and the parentheses around the second polynomial, think of the minus sign before the second set of parentheses as a -1 multiplying the polynomial inside the second set of parentheses. You use the distributive property and get rid of the seciond set of parentheses by multiplying every term inside by -1. That means simply get rid of the parentheses by changing the sign of every term inside the second set of parentheses. Then you combine like terms. Like terms are terms that have the same variable(s) and exponents. These terms can be added or subtracted.

@ashleyvee In both polynomials, there is one single term with m^2. It's 3m^2 in the first polynomial. How did it change to -3m^2 in your answer when there is nothing to combine it with?

(2m3 + 3m2 − 7m) − (5m3 − 9m) 1. Get rid of the first set of parentheses: 2m3 + 3m2 − 7m − (5m3 − 9m) 2. Get rid of second set of parentheses, distributing the negative: 2m3 + 3m2 − 7m − 5m3 + 9m 3. Combine like terms: 2m^3 - 5m^3 + 3m^2 -7m + 9m -3m^3 + 3m^2 + 2m

@ashleyvee Thanks for the tip. I had never heard of mathway. I just went there. The answer according to mathway is: -3m^3 + 3m^2 + 2m which is not what you have.
