# The polynomial 8x² - 8x + 2 - 5 + x is simplified to 8x² - gx - h. What are the values of g and h?

**Solution:**

**Step 1: **Simplify the polynomial and compare the coefficients of the variables.

8x² - 8x + 2 - 5 + x = 8x² - gx - h

**Step 2: **By separating the like and unlike terms, we get

8x² - 8x + x + 2 - 5 = 8x² - gx - h

8x² - 7x - 3 = 8x² - gx - h

**Step 3: **Compare the coefficients of the polynomial.

Coefficient of x² = 8, coefficient of x = - 7 and constant term = - 3

## The polynomial 8x² - 8x + 2 - 5 + x is simplified to 8x² - gx - h. What are the values of g and h?

**Summary:**

The polynomial 8x² - 8x + 2 - 5 + x is simplified to 8x² - gx - h. the value of g = 7 and h = 3.
