( 2X^4 + 9X^3 -1 ) - ( 9X^2 -2X + 4 ) To remove a parenthesis with a negative sign out front, change the

sign of each term within the pa-

renthesis:

2X^4 + 9X^3 -1 -9X^2 + 2X -4

Combine like-terms:

2X^4 + 9X^3 -9X^2 +2X -5.

There were only two like-terms (-1 and -4 ); i don't believe this

can be simplified further.
