The given polynomials are $5x-2$ and $3x+4$
We have to subtract the polynomials using the horizontal format.
Subtract $5x-2$ from $3x+4$
$\left(3x+4\right)-\left(5x-2\right)=3x+4-\left(5x\right)-\left(-2\right)$
$=3x+4-5x+2$
$=\left(3x-5x\right)+\left(4+2\right)$
$=\left(-2x\right)+\left(6\right)$
$=-2x+6$
Answer: After subtracting $5x-2$ from $3x+4$ the resultant polynomial is $-2x+6$.
