# order of parenthesis for Higher degree polynomials

So something I hadn't encountered with basic polynomials is that it seems to matter how the parentheses are ordered.

e.g whether the answer is typed as (x^2-2)(x-8) vs (x-8)(x^2-2)

the video currently up, and the hints don't explain why though. it tends to get pretty frustrating because it keeps telling me I'm wrong but not how fix my mistakes for the future
