Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1So our goal is to match up the leading terms:dw:1384225571316:dwWhat do we want to multiply 2x by to turn it into 10x^4?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Yes very good!dw:1384225878362:dwUnderstand what I did there? I multiplied `each` value by 5x^3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@zepdrix yes I understand that part but what's the next step?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1dw:1384226367803:dwNext we substract. You can either put a negative sign and brackets as I've done here, Or you can switch the sign of each term if that makes more sense to you. Just don't forget that the brackets let's us know that the subtraction is being distributed to each term.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so it would be....12 because the 10x^4 and x^3 are subtracted

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1dw:1384226619653:dwOk good! Understand why we bring the x^3 down with it?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1dw:1384226725590:dwThe x^3 is like the `name` of the things that we're subtracting.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1We end up with 3 apples right? Not just 3. That doesn't tell us enough information.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0alright that makes more since so after 12x^3 ...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1dw:1384227065135:dwWe'll bring down the next term. Notice that I added a 0x^2 to the problem? We `can not` leave out a power of x. See how our powers jump from x^3 down to x? We have to include the x^2 term so I wrote a 0x^2 as a placeholder.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1dw:1384227185855:dwNow we repeat the process again, we want to match these circled terms.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.014 but what about x in this one?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1to get from 2 to 12 I guess we would need to multiply by 6 yes? And to get from x to x^3 we need to multiply by x^2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so then I multiply 6x^2 *2x+3=12x18x^2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.112x^318x^2 is what you meant I assume? Ok good, then we subtract!dw:1384228134036:dw
