1) x^2+x+3 2) -a^2+a+1 (i didn't know if there was any way to simplify this? 3) 2x^2-x 4) 2x^2-2x+1

all wrong, it three right 2 f(x)-2?
anonymous
  • anonymous
its 2*f(x) -2
anonymous
  • anonymous
can you show me how to do them then?
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes

jaersyn i got this

\[1) f(x+1)= (x+1)^{2}-(x+1)+1\] \[=(x+1)(x+1)-x-1+1\] \[=x ^{2}+2x+1-x=x ^{2}+x+1\]

Ok, I get #1. I just didn't distribute the negative sign.

  • anonymous
2) f(-a)=\[f(-a)=(-a)^{2}-(-a)+1=a ^{2}+a+1\]
anonymous
  • anonymous
now retry 3 and 4
anonymous
  • anonymous
i got 2... i dont see what went wrong with 3 and i dont know how to simplify 4
anonymous
  • anonymous
wait- 3 should be 2x^2-2x?
anonymous
  • anonymous
great now on four you just did not square the 2
anonymous
  • anonymous
oh! so it would be 4x^2-2x+1 ?
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes great job you get A+
anonymous
  • anonymous
yay! lol I just always make silly simplifying mistakes or I miss a sign or something simple like that. Oh well, thanks very much ^_^
