multiply the polynomial (x-1)(2x squared - x- 3)

  • Pre-College Algebra -

    distributive property:

    x * (2x^2 - x- 3)
    -1* (2x^2 - x- 3)

    = 2 x^3 - x^2 - 3 x - 2 x^2 + x + 3
    combine like terms
    = 2 x^3 - 3 x^2 - 2 x + 3

    Can someone check my answer please! I'm not sure this is right x(squared)+7x+10=0 (x+r)(x+s) =x(squared)+sx+rx+rs =x(squared)+(r+s)x+rs x(squared)+(r+s)x+rs=x(squared)+7x+10 r+s=7 rs=10 (2)(5)=10 and 3+4=7 x(squared)+7x+10=(x+5)(x+2)
