simplify the following expression and show your problem solving strategy
x cubed + x squared + x + 1 + 2(x cubed + x squared + x + 1) + 3(x cubed + x squared + x + 1) + ....100( x cubed + x squared + x + 1)

Wow... what a problem! Do you know how to distribute? Try that first with the 100(xcubed + x squared), and the other numbers next to paranpheses. Basically, distributing is just multiplying the number outside the paranpheses by each number inside the paranpheses. I think you then add all the x cubed and x squared ones up separetly. Hope I helped!
