Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1the two square roots involved are 2 and 7 so arithmetic on these will give you the missing number

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2well, our options for this would suggest that: (2x)^2 + nx + (7)^2 comes form either: (2x+7)^2 or (2x7)^2 ; the + on the middle term would indicate the first

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0since 49 is apart of the square a term must be its square root i.e. 7 and sincce the other square term is 4x^2...then the term before squaring must be its square root i.e. 2x... so (2x + 7)^2 = 4x^2 + 28x + 49

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3The answer would be 4x^2+ 14x+49 You take the square root of 49 and then take that answer (which is 7) and multiply it by 2. Hope this helps!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Zhang, that only works if the first term is an x^2; we got a 4 in the way this time to do that we would have to divide off the 4 and work it out

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2you should be able to dbl chk it to determine that, but as is, your answer is wrong. You did not account for the 4 on the first term

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2(ax+b)^2 = (ax)^2 + 2ab x + b^2 sqrt(b^2) * 2 = 2b but that only works if a=1, otherwise we have to adjust it for a
