A greenhouse that specializes in growing carnations is divided into sections. The number of plants in each section depends on the number of sprinklers in that section.
There are y(5y − 4) red carnation plants and (9 + y)2 white carnation plants in a section with y sprinklers.
Which simplified expression represents the total number of red and white carnation plants in a section with y sprinklers?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Well, the options are 5y2 + 18y +77 5y4 + 14y + 81 6y2 + 14y + 81 6y2 + 18y + 77 but i already know the second one isn't it.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.6So, by the looks of it, I think we should multiply the two.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4you just need to simplify the two equations separately amd "ADD" them, they just want the total number of carnations .. So simplifying gives you \[5y^24y+81+18y+y^2=6y^2+14y+81\]
