    So I know \[(1-u^2)(1-u^2)u^2\]

    The \[(1-u^2)(1-u^2)\] \[1-u^2-u^2+2u^4\]

    Or\[1-u^4+2u^4 (u^2)\]

    Or \[u^2-2u^6+3u^6?\]

    But the book says \[u^2-2u^4+u^6\]

    Task: simplify the following expression: \[(1 - u^2)^2 * u^2\] Solution: \[(1 - u^2)^2 * u^2 = \] \[(1 - u^2) * (1 - u^2) * u^2 = \] \[(1 - 2u^2 + u^4) * u^2 = \] \[u^6 - 2u^4 + u^2\] I am not sure how you determined your steps, but try to compare them to mine and then see if you can determine where you went wrong. If you get stuck, feel free to ask questions about how the specific steps were computed!
