1. Help with these polynomials

Hello all. I have a problem here with some sample questions off my video tutor cd that came with my text book.

I think they got the answers wrong on two out of the three examples they posted.

I have uploaded the math problems and their answers as pictures to imageshack so you can see exactly what I am talking about.

For the first one I got:

2r cubed -3r squared +9r

For the second one I got:

y squared -6y -5

and for the third I got the same exact number as them.

Ps how do I write the cubed and squard here besides typing them?

Also if I am wrong can someone explain how?

Thanks in advance for any help.

2. Hi

1. There is a mistake in your textbook

2. They have subtracted, you have added (the title is not very clear : add or subtract ...)

You can use LATEX to write cube and square : $\displaystyle x^3 + x^2$

You can find LATEX help in the relevant subforum

3. much thanks

Thank you very much.
