Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i dont know how to do these types of problems im home sick today and this is the practice problems the teacher wants me to do to turn in tomorow to see if i need to do the assighnment or not

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok... lets review some basic concepts then ok.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0to make it easier, lets do this: 3(8) = 24 right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0then this should also equal 24: 3(6+2) = 24 ...make sense?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0good, now how do we prove this? we "distibute" that 3 thru the (6+2) like this, just multiply it thru... 3(6) + 3(2) = 24 18 + 6 = 24 24 = 24.... Do you see how I did that?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yeah so if i do that for this problem i end up with 45y^{2} would that be correct

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0not yet, there are a few more things to iron out...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you see the "y"'s in there....they play by the same rules, but with a difference result

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so it would be just 45?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0quit trying to jump ahead of the curve, if you simply want ananswer to it it aint gonna be useful to you..... we will get to the answer soon enough :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0do you know how the rules of positive and negatives work with multiplication? (+)(+) = (+) ()()=(+) ()(+)=() do you know these rules?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0good, then the only thing left to do is to figure out what to do with they "y"s :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0y^2 means that you have 2 little y's that have been pushed together like this: yy = y^2 y^5 means 5 little y's are pushed together like this: yyyyy = y^5 does that make sense?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0good, when we multiply these y's together, we simply add up all the little y's together, for example: y^2 times y^5 = yy yyyyy = yyyyyyy = y^7 y^1 times y^3 means y yyy = yyyy = y^4 does that make sense?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0then lets step thru your problem and use this understanding to get the answer :) ok?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.05y(y^27y) lets distribute that 5 thru to get: 5(y^2) + 5(7y) = (10y^2 35y) now were left with that y on the outside to distribute thru like this: y(10y^2 35y) y(10y^2) + y(35y) 10yyy + 35yy = 10y^3 35y^2 and thats as far as we can take it

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0and I messed it up lol.....

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.05y(y^27y) lets distribute that 5 thru to get: 5(y^2) + 5(7y) = (5y^2 35y) now were left with that y on the outside to distribute thru like this: y(5y^2 35y) y(5y^2) + y(35y) 5yyy + 35yy = 5y^3 35y^2 and thats as far as we can take it

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so then the answer would be 5y^335y^2?
