2x-1(x-6)

A polynomial is a combination of terms separated using + or – signs. Polynomials cannot contain any of the following:

1. Variables raised to a negative or fractional exponent. (2x-2,x12,…).

2. Variables in the denominator. (1x,1×2,…).

3. Variables under a radical. (x,x3,…).

4. Special features. (trig functions, absolute values, logarithms, …).

Simplify each term.

Apply the distributive property.

2x-1x-1⋅-6

Rewrite -1x as -x.

2x-x-1⋅-6

Multiply -1 by -6.
