Expand the product (x - 2)^2 (x + 2)^3. What is the product of the nonzero coefficients of the resulting expression, including the constant term?
Is there a plus between the 2 polynomials.
If there is then here is the solution,
If you expand the expression you get,
[x^2 -4x +4] + [x^3 +6x^2 + 12x + 8]
you can simplify this even more...
x^3 + 7x^2 +8x + 12
you basically multiply all of the coefficents of x so....
1 x 7 x 8 = 56
you dont mulitply eight becasue it is not a coefficient of x.
