use FOIL to expand each one

= 9x^2 - 30x + 25 - (2x^2 - 8x + x - 4)

now simplify

**Breanna**, Thursday, June 4, 2009 at 8:33pmYes but doesn't -8x and x combine to become -7x? so then it should look like this?

-2x^2 -7x -4?

**Reiny**, Thursday, June 4, 2009 at 8:35pmof course ...

that is what I meant by simplify.

I was expecting you to finish the question.

can you tell me what the next few lines would be ?

Is this correct?
