Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0g(f(x)) = 4(16x^2) right so far?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so then it's 4 16 +x^2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0cool, now do I plug in that g(x) for f(x)= 16x^2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1quite horrible, but just sub 4x into the x.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.016(4x)^2 is 16 (4x)(4x) which is 32 +8x+x^2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0and then add that to the 12+x^2 from g(x)?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0hmm, very close, but something's off isn't it?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.116(4x)^2 is not 16 (4x)(4x) it's 16  (4x)(4x) though.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ohhh, that may fix it

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yeah. something will cancel out.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yea, it left +8x x^2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0but I still don't have it exactly right. I should be getting x^2 +x +12 I think, but I've got a 12

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1note that (f+g)(x)=16x^2 +4x

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1(fg)(x)=16x^2 (4x)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0hmm, so what do I need to do to solve it now?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1well, first, lol which are you doing? addition or subtraction?

brandonloves

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0well, it says f+g, so I would assume addition

Shadowys

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so, simplify this one and you're done. (f+g)(x)=16x^2 +4x

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.016(12+x^2) +4(12+x^2)? I think I screwed it up

brandonloves

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0or is it 16(+8x x^2) +4(+8x x^2) I'm not too sure of anything anymore

Shadowys

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1you don't need sub anything, just simplify as it's (f+g)(x) =f(x)+g(x)

brandonloves

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh, cuz I've already done all that. duh.

brandonloves

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0but when I add them together, I only get 20, the x^2's cancel out

brandonloves

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I have an option for the answer to be x^2x+20

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1add 16x^2 and 4x only.

brandonloves

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok, well, thats it, obviously. but what happened to the 8x and +/2x^2's? were those just wrong?

Shadowys

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1they weren't needed? :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0jesus christ. haha. well ok. sorry for being such a pain in the retrice thanks for the help though
