fundamental operations on polynomials

Solve the following questions involving fundamental operations on polynomials:

A) find p(x)+4q(x)
p(x)=3x^5+70x^3-67x^2+3
q(x)=3x^3+56x^2-19
(3x^5+70x^3-67x^2+3)+4(3x^3+56x^2-19)
(3x^5+70x^3-67x^2+3)+12x^3+224x^2-19) distribute the 4
3x^5+70x^3+12x^3-67x^2+224x^2-19 put like terms together
3x^5+82x^3+157x^2-19 combine like terms

B) Find P(-1/2)if P(x)=x^4=3x^2+2
(-1/2)^4-3(-1/2)^2+2 = 1/256 - 1/4 + 2 = 449/256 = 1 193/256
(-1/2)^4+3(-1/2)^2+2 = 1/256 + 1/4 + 2 = 577/256 = 2 65/256
not sure if the = before 3x^2 was supposed to be + ...
