Please perform the indicated operations and simplify

(3x-5)^2-(2x+1)(x-4)

• Algebra -

(3x-5)^2-(2x+1)(x-4)
use FOIL to expand each one

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

now simplify

• Algebra -

Yes but doesn't -8x and x combine to become -7x? so then it should look like this?

-2x^2 -7x -4?

• Algebra -

of 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 ?

• Algebra -

9x2-30x+25
-2x2 -7x -4
--------------
7x2 -23+29
Is this correct?

• Algebra -

Thanks Breanna! Looks correct to me!
