Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Depends on what the question actually wants you to do. Usually examples of how to do these things are in your textbook.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I Tried Getting An Understanding of it but the question was : Simplify The Product . Write In Standard Form p(8p^2+3p)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I cannot help you with this as it is not clear what to do. There's only two things you can do to a product. You can either factor it or expand it. Either way can be considered simplification. If you want to simplify it so that it is just the product of two numbers, then p^2(8p + 3) is correct. If you want to simplify it so that it is just the addition of two terms, then 8p^3  3p^2 is what you want. Since it is not clear exactly which simplification is to be used, it is an ambiguous question from my point of view.
