When you have a squard function (or any function raised to an exponent), u need to set it up as: (x-4)(x-4)

So it would be x2 -8?

Nope. U now need to distribute the x and 4 (multiply) with the terms in the OTHER parenthesis
anonymous
  • anonymous
(x-4)(x-4)= (x*x) - (4*x) = (x^2-4x) <--- this is only part of it
anonymous
  • anonymous
Oh!!!! So you basically just multiply the x to the other side and then do the same with the 4. So it would be 4 times x then 4 times 4. Right?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Right!!!
anonymous
  • anonymous
Show me your answer when finished

  • anonymous
So i know the 16 goes on the very end so im thinking its C but i dont know how it gets the 8.
anonymous
  • anonymous
Pay attention to your pos/neg signs when you combine like terms. x^2 -4x-4x+16 ---> Because you have two of the same (-4x), u combine them. -4-4= -8. Do u see??
anonymous
  • anonymous
Sort of. So its basically x - y + (y*y) ?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Errr, i dont understand that little formula. Im sorry. Let me try another way. 1st, do u see why I have two -4's??
anonymous
  • anonymous
Uhm yea. because its (x-4) and (x-4). So you just put them togeather. x= x2 and -4= -8. Right?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Hmmm, u're right. But Hopefully u wont confuse yourself with that formula u had before
anonymous
  • anonymous
Well what i dont understand is why you have to multiply it when your just simplifying it.
anonymous
  • anonymous
Simplify means that you are turning the function/equation into ONE form. Basically, you want to combine all like terms on both sides and reduce it to it's simplest form.
anonymous
  • anonymous
But then what if your multiplying it? For instance 5xy(2x - y). Does that mean you just to the same thing?
anonymous
  • anonymous
The 1st problem u had above, is not giving us any information. But in it's simplest form, we can find maximums & minimums of a graph, points of intersection, slope. You'll learn about all that stuff later. But you cant find the information you need with it being in the simplest form
anonymous
  • anonymous
Yes, u do the same thing
anonymous
  • anonymous
BUT, 5xy is considered ONE term. Dont separate the 5 from x & y
anonymous
  • anonymous
So you just separate the 5xy from the (2x - y) ? Then multiply the 2 together?
anonymous
  • anonymous
No need to separate anything. A number infront of a parenthesis also means to multiply. Or, to distribute the 1st number with each number on the inside of the parenthesis
anonymous
  • anonymous
Try 10(9x+3)
anonymous
  • anonymous
It means that (10*9x) PLUS (10*3).
anonymous
  • anonymous
|dw:1339625177685:dw|
anonymous
  • anonymous
So it would be 90x+30. Would you need to simplify?
anonymous
  • anonymous
CORRECT! If it is simplified again, it would go back to its orginal form 10(9x+3)
anonymous
  • anonymous
Ok, i really suck at explaining! im sorry
anonymous
  • anonymous
Ohhhhhh! I understand now! Thank you!!!!!
anonymous
  • anonymous
cooool! No problem. Do u get the -8 though? I can draw a pic.
anonymous
  • anonymous
Yea i understand that part now. Seriously though thanks abunch!
anonymous
  • anonymous
Cool. Glad i helped somehow
