**It's incorrect, because 6 squared = 36, 8 squared = 64, add them together and you get 100. 12 squared does NOT equal 100, it equals 144.**</h3>

<em>(To find the hypotenuse {longest side of the triangle}, you square the two short sides, add them together, and finally, divide it by the provided number, and see if the number matches the provided number's square.)</em>

Remember that the terms of a polynomial are the parts of the polynomial separating by addition and subtraction; in other words, the parts separated by (+) and (-) signs. Knowing this, we can separate the terms of our polynomial:

- First term:

- Second term:

- Third term:

- Fourth term:

- Fifth term:

We can conclude that there are

**5 terms** in the polynomial

Okay. To find the distance apart from each other, subtract 15.3 and 7.5. When you do that, you should get 7.8. -7.5 and -15.3 are 7.8 units away on a number line.
