This is just driving me crazy, I know its a simple mode adjustment but I just can't find it. I am trying to display answers in algebraic notation but keep getting numbers that I can't even determine to base of.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Example: 3x^2(-5) yeilds -540 when I am looking for -15x^2.

If anyone could please help me with this exceedingly frustrating and exponentially benign question I would be grateful^10\inf.
