(x^5+x^4+x+10)-(x^5+2x^4-x^3+12)

 

  (x^5 + x^4  + 0x^3  +  0x^2  + x  + 10)

- (x^5 + 2x^4 - x^3                       +  12)

_________________________________

 

 

  x^5 + x^4  + 0x^3  +  0x^2  + x  + 10

- x^5 - 2x^4  + x^3                       -  12

_________________________________

        -x^4 + x^3                   + x - 2
