y=5x+2 y2 = 5x x = (1/5)(y2)

10xy + 4y = 10 (1/5)(y2) y + 4y = 2(y  2)y + 4y = 2y^2  4y + 4y = 2y^2 <Final answer

o_o I'm taking the PSAT... I don't know how to do these types of questions......

To clarify on what @bahrom7893 said, I would've done something a bit simpler? \[\implies10xy + 4y~~~~~~~~~~Original~Expression\]\[\implies 2y(5x + 2)~~~~~~~~~Factor~out~the~GCF\]\[\implies 2y(y) ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Substitute\]\[\implies 2y^2~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Multiplication~of~variables\]

ok let's do another problem I need to get better.

CalcmathleteBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
Uh ok then... \[y = (3x + 2)^3\]\[\text{Simplify in terms of y: } (9x + 6)^3\]

CalcmathleteBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
Very similar to the one you were doing on that PSAT question.

ok I think I got it.

so do I multiply to the 3rd power?
 one year ago

CalcmathleteBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
Yes, the \(^{'3'}\) implies cubing it or multiplying by itself 3 times.

Not quite...could you show me what you did?

well you its dw:1349998059319:dw so i multiply the exponent to the 3rd?
 one year ago

CalcmathleteBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
If you were to actually multiply it out, it would be like doing this: \[(9x + 6)^3 \implies (9x + 6)(9x + 6)(9x + 6)\]which is unnecessary here. Again, like previous times, do you see anything that you can factor out?

ok if we can (9x+6) (9x+6) (9x+6)
 one year ago

CalcmathleteBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
THat is not a step that we even need to take, but we can solve it using that. It would be a slightly longer process though. Let's work WITHIN the parentheses first. Don't do anything ith the \(^3\) for now.

pokemon23Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
ok will keep it (9x+6)^3

CalcmathleteBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
Now factor what's within the parentheses...
 one year ago

CalcmathleteBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
The 3 wouldn't go outside of the parentheses because it's still under the \(^3\), so it would become \((3(3x + 2))^3\) Do you see why that is?
 one year ago

pokemon23Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
explain those parentheses
 one year ago

CalcmathleteBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
Well, let's take the approach that you had before. \[(9x + 6)^3 \implies (9x + 6)(9x + 6)(9x + 6) \implies 3(3x + 2)3(3x + 2)3(3x + 2)\]\[3 \times 3 \times 3(3x + 2)(3x + 2)(3x + 2) \implies 3^3(3x + 2)^3~~~OR~~~27(3x + 2)^3\]See what I did? You can't take the 3 \(\LARGE{ENTIRELY}\) out of the parentheses unless you take the \(^3\) with it.

instead of the x make it a y?
 one year ago

CalcmathleteBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
Uh...remember that \(y = (3x + 2)^3...\) You can substitute y in for that value now. Tell me what your final answer would be now.
 one year ago

CalcmathleteBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
Umm...no... \[(9x + 6)^3 \implies (3(3x + 2))^3 \implies 3^3(3x + 2)^3 \implies 27(3x + 2)^3 \implies 27y\]
 one year ago

CalcmathleteBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
Do you see why? Do you understand what it means when it says "in terms of y"? Do you see that we're replacing ALL OF \((3x + 2)^3\) with y? That way nothing in that is cubed anymore?

pokemon23Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
I still don't get how divided 27(3x+2)^3 to get 27y
 one year ago

CalcmathleteBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
Where do you see a division symbol? There is no division invloved in this except the beginning factoring portion. \[\large{\text{We just clarified that y}}~\LARGE\text{=}~\large{(3x + 2)^3}\]Just replace \((3x + 2)^3\) with y and that's all that happened.

where does (3x+2)^3? disappear?

I don't understand the y part...
 one year ago

CalcmathleteBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
fdiofvejbvnweokgnweoifnerwo That is what we're substituting with y! Remember when we said y = 2 and we plugged it in? Well we could say that 2 = y and we plug y in for the 2. SAME THING HERE. y = (3x + 2)^3 (3x + 2)^3 = y Now you just plug in why for the (3x + 2)^3
