# find the value of the polynomial 8x - 6 when x = 1 and when x = -1

8(1) - 6= 2

8(-1) - 6=

-8 -6 = is the answer -14 or -2

-8 -6 = -14

## To find the value of a polynomial for a specific value of x, you need to substitute that value into the polynomial expression and evaluate it.

For the polynomial 8x - 6, let's substitute x = 1:

8(1) - 6

= 8 - 6

= 2

So, when x = 1, the value of the polynomial 8x - 6 is 2.

Now let's substitute x = -1:

8(-1) - 6

= -8 - 6

= -14

So, when x = -1, the value of the polynomial 8x - 6 is -14.
