Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2let's deal with the bracket first whenever u see negative sign outside the paretheses first you should use distributive property \[[(6x ^{2}+3x+2)\color{ReD}{(3x ^{2}4x+5)}](x ^{2}+4x5)\] distribute parentheses by negative one

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[[(6x ^{2}+3x+2)(3x ^{2}4x+5)](x ^{2}+4x5)\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so after distribution my equation looks like \[[6x ^{2}+3x+2+3x ^{2}+4x5](x ^{2}+4x5)\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2right now combine like terms in the bracket and then distribute parentheses by negative one :=)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2\[[\color{ReD}{6x ^{2}+3x+2+3x ^{2}+4x5}](x ^{2}+4x5)\] what are like terms in the bracket ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[6x ^{2} + 3x ^{2} =9x ^{2}, 3x + 4x =7x , 2+ (5) =3\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2hmme 2 +(5 ) isn't positive 3 remember if the bigger number is negative then answer would be negative :=)
