The question:

can you help me solve this problem

4M to the second(2M to the second - m to the third)


The answer:

4M to the second(2M to the second - m to the third)

4m²(2m² - m³)

There is no equation to solve. An equation must have an = sign, such as:

4m²(2m² - m³) = 0

or

4m²(2m² - m³) = 10


However, the expression can be expanded:

4m²(2m² - m³)

= 4m² * 2m² - 4m² * m³)

= 4*2*m⁽²⁺²⁾ - 4*m⁽²⁺³⁾

= 4*2*m⁴ - 4*m⁵

= 8m⁴ - 4m⁵


This expression can also be factored:

4m²(2m² - m³)

= -4(m-2)m⁴



Thanks for writing.
