What do you mean by 'opposite'

Shadow:

For adding these I think you just line up the like terms So x^2 can only be added with other x^2, x added with other x, and constants added with other constants (ex: 3 + 5).

\[\rm (9x^2-4x+8) \large \color{red}{-}(12x^2-6x-3) \] which is same as \[\rm (9x^2-4x+8) \large \color{red}{-1}(12x^2-6x-3) \] 1st) distribute negative 1 2nd) combine like terms if the signs are opposite you will subtract.
