Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1@hba Complicating it would be using the Taylor series for \(x\). I apologize for replying when she was talking to you; I misread the post.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1@hba okay so far i got 3(2x8)=12

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Now see this \[\ \cancel 3 \times \frac{ 1 }{\ \cancel 3 }(2x8)=4 \times 3\]
