### This Is a Certified Answer

Certified answers contain reliable, trustworthy information vouched for by a hand-picked team of experts. Brainly has millions of high quality answers, all of them carefully moderated by our most trusted community members, but certified answers are the finest of the finest.
P = 4x⁴ - 3x³ + x² - 5x + 11
Q = -3x⁴ + 6x³ - 8x² + 4x - 3

2P + Q = 5x⁴ - 6x² - 6x + 19

Substitute the values of P and Q.
2 (4x⁴ - 3x³ + x² - 5x + 11) + (-3x⁴ + 6x³ - 8x² + 4x - 3)

Multiply 2 by (4x⁴ - 3x³ + x² - 5x + 11) using the distributive property of multiplication.
(2 · 4x⁴) + (2 · -3x³) + (2 · x²) + (2 · -5x) + (2 · 11) + (-3x⁴ + 6x³ - 8x² + 4x - 3)
(8x⁴ - 6x³ + 2x² - 10x + 22) + (-3x⁴ + 6x³ - 8x² + 4x - 3)

Combine like terms together.
(8x⁴ + -3x⁴) + (6x³ 6x³) + (2x² + -8x²) + (-10x 4x(22 + -3)
5x
⁴ + 0 + - 6x² - 6x + 19
5x⁴ - 6x² - 6x + 19

P - 2Q = 10x⁴ - 15x³ + 17x² - 13x + 17

Substitute values of P and Q
(4x⁴ - 3x³ + x² - 5x + 11) - 2 (-3x⁴ + 6x³ - 8x² + 4x - 3)

Multiply using the distributive property of multiplication.
(4x⁴ - 3x³ + x² - 5x + 11) + (-2 · -3x⁴) + (-2 · 6x³) + (-2 · -8x²) + (-2 · 4x) + (-2 · -3)
(4x⁴ - 3x³ + x² - 5x + 11) + (6x⁴ - 12x³ + 16x² - 8x + 6)

Combine like terms.
(4x⁴ + 6x⁴) + (-3x³ + -12x³) + (x² + 16x²) + (-5x + - 8x) + (11 + 6)
10x⁴ - 15x³ + 17x² - 13x + 17
