    First Outer Inner Last First means you would multiply (3x)(2x) Outer means you would multiply (3x)(-3) Inner means you would multiply (1)(2x) Last means you would multiply (1)(-3) You add all these terms up and get your answer.

    some people like to do online courses and are only interested in the solutions. They are not interested in the process or the mathematics. What a shame! They want the machine to do all of their thinking. Not interested in orginal thoughts
