Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2i am having a little trouble solving this one

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1one thing is that it's a lot easier on the eyes if you don't use caps

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2wow can you explain how to do that

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2x+{y34x+2[3x(y1)+2y]3x} = ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I edited your post for you :) anyway, we work here from the inside out so what is the first (innermost) operation?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1right, and there's not much we can do with that... so on to the next step we now look at it as\[3x(y1)+2y\]do you know how to simplify this?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2i believe it is 3x+y+1+2y then 3x+2y+1

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so what is the next step outside of that?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1x+{y34x+2[3x(y1)+2y]3x} and we got that now to be x+{y34x+2[3x+3y+1]3x} so what is the innermost step we should do (careful on this one)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2{y34x+2[3x+3y+1]3x}

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1almost.... and that can work, but we can make it even simpler the first thing to be done (the innermost operation) is to distribute the 2: 2[3x+3y+1]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1good so simplify that and tell me what you get

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.22[3x+3y+1] which is 6x +6y +2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1good, so now substitute that into the next outer expression (the one you wrote before)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1great, and now we simplify that....

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1no be more careful with your like terms what are just all the x's added up?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1oh I see you took the last step already which is to add the final outer x well good job, yes, that is the final answer

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2ok well can we try one more to make sure i learned everything well. if not thats fine you earned your medal?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I'm never in it for the medals :) but you're still supposed to post separate each Q as per the code of conduct In this case we can do one more quickly here as I said, I'm multitasking

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so what is the first innermost operation?

TuringTest

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1right, but we can't simplify that, so what's the next outer operation (again, like last time, be careful here)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.26+{a3[b+6(ab)+4a]2b}=? then [b+6a6b+4a]

countonme123

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2ok so now 6+{a3[b+6a6b+4a]2b}=? then [10a5b] then 3[10a5b]= 30a+15b

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2so now we have 6+{31a+17b}=? solve it now 631a+17b fix it up a bit... 31a+17b+6 am I right ,am I ,am I?
