When dealing with brackets in polynomial problems the first thing you need to notice is if there is a negative sign before the bracket. If there is not then all you need to do is get rid of the bracket and combine similar terms. If there is a negative sign then you need to multiply everything inside the bracket by a negative 1. This will change all of the signs inside the bracket. This video is a quick demonstration that will help you when completing these problems.
