This does not make sense
I have to "Simplify each expression", here is one I have to simplify
-x2 + 8x - 12
Please tell me what to do. Also I hate Algebra, it makes me so mad that I have to learn something that I will forget in a few years and will never use it in life, basically the only job you can get by learning algebra is being an algebra teacher (Headbang)
thanks for the help and sorry for the rant, and thanks for the encouragement.
now I have another question. where did the -1 come from? that seems to be my main problem with algebra, I can look in an algebra book and see how a problem is done, but they dont tell you why they do the problem that way.
