  1. Write it as

    (3x^2-8x+1)(-2x^2 -2)

    Multiply each of the terms in the first parentheses by each of the terms in the second parentheses, and than add up the products. You will end up with the sum of six terms. Some that have the same power of x can be combined.

    Here's the first step:
    -6x^4 -6x^2 +16x^3 +16x -2x^2 -2
