Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1ok i cant read. start with \[x^5(x2)^2\] and multiply out

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh nvm.... so what am I multiplying out then? the (x2)^2 or?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Oh ok so I just needed to continue multiplying to completly get rid of the parenthisis cool thank you... so what if it is the same question but it says 1/3 is a double root and 2 is a double root? do I set it up like this: f(x)=(x1/3)^2(x+2)^2
