I'm working on polynomials, something I've did before, but I'm a bit rusty. So I was doing okay, until I got to this problem, and I cannot understand why it is being marked as wrong. The computer tells me "Although your answer is equal to the correct answer it is in the wrong form." though it doesn't provide any instruction as to what form it wants. In any case, after getting it wrong three times it was marked as wrong and it provided me with the correct response. Only thing is, I do not even understand how the correct answer is equal my to answer. Here is the problem: Remember the Communtative Property of Multiplication. A*B = B*A So (R^2)(S) = (S)(R^2). Its just a matter of combining like terms at that point. Also in regards to the computer answer, in theory the problem presented is the correct answer as well. Just in the wrong form.
