Subject: Re: help solving problem with polynomials

I hate these type of problems, but I think ive pretty much mastered
them now, Hope this helps you:

3 less than TWICE x = (2x-3)   *key words here would be less than*
and  
2 more than the quantity 3 times x? = (3x+2)

**consider the AND word represting 2 different problem sets in
parenthesis**
(2x-3)(3x+2)  *now you just FOIL the problem*

6x2+4x-9x-6

6x2-5x-6  *and here is your answer, if you have any more questions,
feel free to email me*
