    coefficients require a variable. The 6 is just a constant, not a coefficient of x.

    7A
    Total is just the sum:
    6t+2 + 9t-6 = (6+9)t+(2-6) = 15t-4

    15A
    (1.8 x 10^1)(7 x 10^5)
    = (1.8x7)x10^(1+5)
    = 12.6x10^6
    = 1.26x10^7

    18D
    -x(5x-4)
    = -x*5x -x(-4)
    = -5x^2 + 4x
    Look again at your answer. It is correct, but it is not A.
