17. Sunshine447

okay, all your going to do is multiply everything in the first set of parentheses by the second. start with the first: -4h*3h=? -4h*7=? 2*3h=? 2*7=? fill it in

18. yummydum

that should give you \[-4h^{2}-28h+6h+14\]combine like terms\[-4h^{2}-22h+14\]

20. jess.white

would it be like that

21. Sunshine447

24. jess.white

Thats how i do it and then i just get stuck

25. yummydum

go back to my previous posts :)

26. Sunshine447

do you know how to combine the like terms?

27. jess.white

not really see i know how to you know multiply them its just how do you know if its - or + between

28. Sunshine447

-4h*3h=-12h^2 -4h*7=-28h 2*3h=6h 2*7=14 when combined it is -12h^2-22h+14

29. jess.white

ok but how do you go from 28 to 22?

30. Sunshine447

the -28h+6h

31. jess.white

ohh ok so the answer would be -12h^2-22h+14?

32. Sunshine447

yep :)

33. jess.white
