Rewrite this without the coefficient.
Example: 3m = m+m+m
However, I cannot seem to figure out what to do with this problem:
I can't figure out how to rewrite so the -5 is gone and without changing the exponents!
One possiblity would be
-[m^3n^2 + m^3n^2 + m^3n^2 + m^3n^2 + m^3n^2]
The - in front is like a -1 so that would still leave a coefficient...
Unless it was (-m^3n^2 + -m^3n^2 + -m^3n^2 + -m^3n^2 + -m^3n^2) then that would have eliminated the -1 in front! I knew it was easy I just couldn't get my brain to wrap around it!
