Find the constant coefficient when the polynomial \(3(x - 4) + 2(x^2 - x + 7) - 5(x - 1)\) is simplified.

The constant coefficient is the number with x^0.

So, we just need to find those.

3(x-4) has the -12. (3*-4)

2(x^2-x+7) has a 14. (2*7)

-5(x-1) has a 5. (-5*-1)

Now, we just sum everything together. :))

-12+14+5 = 7

I hope this helped.
