Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so the correcy answer is 2  x + y, why can't it be 2 + x + Y based on what you said?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0It goes back to what I was saying about the brackets. You have to do some rearranging and put it in the appropriate form. What you could do is just expand out the factors that I gave you and then match them up. So\[(2(x+y))(2+(x+y))=(2xy)(2+x+y)\]
