[1-(x-h)](2-x) - (1-x)[2+(x+h)] 2+(x+h) 2+x my ans is x^-5 (2+x+h)(2+x)
im lost

2x^2(x-1) (2+x+h)(2+x)

Yes thats the orginal problem

i did that my ans 2x^2(x-1) (2+x+h)(2+x)
Originally Posted by zbest1966 i did that my ans 2x^2(x-1) (2+x+h)(2+x) That's not what I'm getting. It would be helpful if you showed the actual work you did to get that answer... Now combine like terms.
Thank you, that was a killer
