## Study Notes

### Operations on Polynomials

- Addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division of polynomials follow similar rules as algebraic expressions.

### Subtraction Example

- To subtract polynomials, rearrange and combine like terms.
- Example calculation:
- Subtract (5a^2 - 2a) from (7a^2 + 5a + 6) results in:
- ( (7a^2 + 5a + 6) - (5a^2 - 2a) = 2a^2 + 7a + 6 )

### Multiplication Example

- To multiply a polynomial by a monomial, distribute the monomial to each term of the polynomial.
- Example calculation:
- Multiply (-2a) by (5a^2) yields:
- (-2a \times 5a^2 = -10a^3)

### Polynomial Product Example

- Multiplying two polynomials requires distributing each term in one polynomial by each term in the other.
- Example calculation:
- For ((m^2 - 5) \times (m^3 + 2m - 2)):
- Distributing gives:
- ( m^5 + 2m^3 - 2m^2 - 5m^3 - 10m + 10 )

- Combining like terms results in:
- ( m^5 - 3m^3 - 2m^2 - 10m + 10 )

- Degree of the resulting polynomial is 5.

### Addition Example

- Adding polynomials involves rearranging and combining like terms.
- Example calculation:
- Adding (3m^2n + 5mn^2 - 7mn) and (2m^2n - mn^2 + mn):
- Results in:
- ( 5m^2n + 4mn^2 - 6mn ) after arranging and combining like terms.
