    Is it asking you to multiply the two equations?

    I'm pretty sure its asking you to multiply, do you know how to multiply two equations with distribution?

    i agree that it makes the most sense, according to the choices, to multiply them

    You can set it up, this is a poorly set up question. \[(x^2 - 2)(3x^2 + 2x - 2)\]

    the setup is fine, it mimics multiplying by numbers just fine. the instructions are a bit vague tho

    If you just look at the final numbers, there is only one possible option. A negative times a negative is a positive . . .

    \[\left(3 x^2+2 x-2\right) \left(x^2-2\right)=3 x^4+2 x^3-8 x^2-4 x+4 \]

    It's multiplication, but it's definitely pretty vague.

    If you look at the options there's no way you could use addition to come up with those.

    @barbdewysveck1 Assumed the line was multiplication like 3 x 9 ____ 12 Was not certain until Mathematica calculated the product.

    Made a blunder in my last posting. The entry should have been: 3 x 9 ____ 27
