This topic message concerns the use of the Addition of
unlike signs for the solving of a Polynomial(s).
e.g. ab = a + b
Hence , the last step of the polynomial becoming
solved could revert to the original form.
e.g. a+ b = a  b
Consider this technique for solving the next poly
nomial .
original problem :
(3x^24x+7)+(5x^2+x11) orig form
(3x^2+4x+7)+(5x^2+x+11) add of unlike signs
(3x^2+5x^2)+(4x+x)+(7+11) comm.& assoc. prop of +
2x^2 + 3x + 4 solve
2x^2  3x  4 orig form
I have used this method to solve polynomials in the
order of 10 or 15 terms with alternate mathematic
process. Notice the operations outside the parenthesis
stay consistent with one sign.
