Example Question #1 : Polynomials: Ccss.Math.Content.Hsa Apr.A.1

Given  and  find .

Possible Answers:

Correct answer:

Explanation:

To find the difference of two polynomials first set up the operation and identify the like terms.

The like terms in these polynomials are the squared variable and the constant terms.

Remember to distribute the negative sign through to all terms in the second polynomial.

Therefore, the sum of these polynomials is,
