\[2x^{2}-3x+4-x^{2}-4x+1\] \[2x^{2}-x^{2}-3x-4x+4+1\] \[x^{2}-7x+5\]

No problem just always remember to get rid of the brackets first Get rid isn't the right terminology but you know what I mean Eg time sing by minus one to get rid of the negative sign Then gather like terms then rewrite it :)

It could be written as \[-8x^{3}\] which is simpler
