1/3: Just drop the ( ) and combine like terms (anything that have EXACTLY the same number of variables)
2/4: DISTRIBUTE the - to the SECOND polynomial, so CHANGE THE SIGN of EVERYTHING in the second set of parenthesis (), THEN combine like terms.
5: rearrange the problem to get a SUBTRACTION problem, and then follow the "directions" for #'s 2/4.
