To simplify (-5x^2 (-8x^2 - 5x)), you can use the distributive property. First, distribute (-5x^2) to both terms inside the parentheses:

[ -5x^2 \times (-8x^2) = 40x^4 ] [ -5x^2 \times (-5x) = 25x^3 ]

Then, combine the like terms:

[ 40x^4 + 25x^3 ]

Therefore, the simplified expression is (40x^4 + 25x^3).

When evaluating a one-sided limit, you need to be careful when a quantity is approaching zero since its sign is different depending on which way it is approaching zero from. Let us look at some examples.
