no it is 27a^3 - 72a^2b^3 - 96ab^6 + 64b^9
how did you get the middle part? i don't get it.
did you use foil and do the equation times itself then foil again for the 3rd time?
cubic expansion is a^3 + a^2b + b^2a + b^3 for ( a + b ) ^ 3 its different from squaring
what you have as the "should be " answer
is the expansion of ( 3a)^3 - (4b^3)^3
is that correct though? if i was just asked to simplify?
= (3a - 4b^3)( 9a^2 +12ab^3 + 16b^6)
ahh ignore what I wrote above lol , I thought you meant that was the answer the textbook had
no, that was my answer. i see- so it is wrong.
well, I am guessing they said expand and simplify, because something factor is alot more simple than a messy cubic expansion
it is just a post i have to answer...simplify and then the equation.
i will write what i thought- seems a lot simpler than your way :)
