To find the sum or difference of (-4z^3-2z+8)-(4z^3+3z^2-5), you simply combine like terms.

When you subtract the second polynomial from the first one, you change the signs of all terms in the second polynomial and then combine like terms:

-4z^3 - 2z + 8 - 4z^3 - 3z^2 + 5

= (-4z^3 - 4z^3) + (-2z) + 0 + (-3z^2) + 8 + 5

= -8z^3 - 3z^2 - 2z + 13
