I'm trying to help my brother solve a question his teacher has given him, although I think it's worded incorrectly, and have been staring at it for quite some time. Does anyone here know what the teacher might be looking for? I really don't understand what he means when he says:

List the terms of the following expression.

10p2 – 2p – 1

List the terms?? Do you think he is asking to solve the problem? I know you can simplify the problem, but you can't solve it, because p is unknown..

What do you all think?

Thanks!
