What is the standard form of a polynomial #(y-2)(y^2+2y+3)#?
To transform this to the standard form we must first multiply each term in the left parenthesis by each term in the right parenthesis:
To multiply these two terms you multiply each individual term in the left parenthesis by each individual term in the right parenthesis.
We can now group and combine like terms:
#y^3 + 2y^2 - 2y^2 + 3y - 4y - 6
