    Chromatic Polynomial: Does anyone else get the same answer as me?

    I lost my notes which included the answer to this question, so I was just wondering if I had done it correctly:



    I get:

    k(k-1)^2(k-2)^2 - k(k-1)(k-2)^2 - k(k-1)(k-2)^2

    = k(k-1)^2(k-2)^2 - 2k(k-1)(k-2)^2

    =k(k-1)(k-2)^2(k-3)

    Thanks.
