Just about ready to explode Arvin's astonishingly round head.

I mean, I get the idea that math assignments are all about practice, but this shit is getting ridiculous.

*sigh* ... start again

Here's a question:

True or false: 5x^2 = 5^2 * x^2

I really can't remember if that applies for coefficients, or just for variables.

it depends if it is:
5x^2
OR
(5x)^2
the first is false, the second true
