I just started a math class and am trying to figure out what I am doing but am struggling with a bit of homework.
1. (X+3)(2x^3 -5)(x^7+3)
The very first thing to do would be to present a problem statement. Those are lovely expressions. What is to be done with them?
You have studied multiplication all these years, now is the time to use it. Multiply each piece of one factor by each piece of every other factor. Do the first one and let's see what you get.
Sorry I did not specify what my assignment was. I am supposed to simplify each polynomial.
I worked these previously and got similar answers each time but we are using a very touchy online homework site and I am having trouble putting in the problems in correctly.
