There's a couple steps to this problem. Expand and then simplify the equation. The last is to solve this equation: when x =2. But when I run it, it comes up empty
𝑦= (𝑥^3 +1)(𝑥^2 +2𝑥−5)(𝑥^2 −3)^2
y = (x^3+1)*(x^2+2*x-5)*(x^2-3)^2 %deleted "eqn =' double = leads to error
expand(y) %switch out "eqn" with "y"
simplify(y) %same as above
