Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0or you can multiply out an get \[3(x^2+4x+4)=3x^2+12x+12\]\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i know i multiply by the power take one off then multiply by derivative of the inside of bracket but i need the substitution method

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0then ignore it, it is a crutch. if you know the chain rule it is entirely unnecessary to say \(u=x+2\) \(y=u^2\) etc

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i guess you would say \[u=x+2\] \[y=3u^2\] etc etc, but it is silly

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ahhhh okay, then dy/du=6u then du/dx=1 mutliply then substitute u thank you <3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you have a composition of functions 1) first add 2 2) then square the result, multiply by 3 inner function can be written as \(u=x+2\) outer as \(y=3u^2\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so i substitute u= then y is equal to the new equation with u substituted thank you!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i know that wy i was struggling with the substitution method i know how to do it straight away though
