It should be -2. Why did they sum the 20? 20 is a constant, not a coefficient, right? And also, the solution has one more error also.. Look at the part when the \(x^2\) is multiplied with the function inside the bracket besides it.

Edit: I know that after 20 there is a variable of x which has power of 0. But, isn't it still a constant?

TopNewestYes, it is a constant. And it is the co-efficient of \(x^0\). – Siam Habib · 2 years, 11 months ago

The coefficient of the constant term \( 20 x^0 \) is 20.

Thanks for pointing out the typo in the solution. I've edited it. It should say -3 instead of -5 throughout, and in the second solution \(31\) should be replaced by \( 3 \times 1 \). The final answer of 18 is still correct. – Calvin Lin Staff · 2 years, 11 months ago
