This lecture covers the operations on polynomials such as adding and subtracting polynomials and multiplying polynomials. When adding and subtracting polynomials, remove the parentheses first. Then, combine the like terms. Be very careful with this because not all terms can be combined. When multiplying polynomials, use the distributive property, which states that a(b+c)=ab+ac. You'll apply this property when multiplying a monomial and a polynomial, or two binomials, and so on. Practice operations on polynomials through the examples.
*These practice questions are only helpful when you work on them offline on a piece of paper and then use the solution steps function to check your answer.
