The question is
(2x+1)^2-2(2x^2-1) in simplest form
Is this correct?
[(2x+1)(2x+1)](-4x^2+2)
4x^2+2x+2x+1(-4x^2+2)
4x^2+4x+1(-4x^2+2)
-16x^4-16x^3-4x^2
+ 8x^2+8x+2
_________________________

Thank you for your help.

    the way you typed it , I saw a subraction

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

    You did

    ((2x+1)^2 )(-2)(2x^2-1)
