try the difference of squares formula in reverse. its the same as FOILing but it results in a shortcut

how do i do that? im confused. i was absent for this

i wrote it earlier let a = x and b = 6 in the formula

itsjustme_lolBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
then how would i solve that? am i thinking to hard about this? haha

if you were trying to solve it ? there is no equation to solve. what did you mean solve it ?

idk? im confused now...i guess I had to solve it it? in order to simplify it wouldnt I have to solve it?

solve it means finding a solution to an equation simplifying means rewriting an expression if there is no equals sign its just an expression and there is nothing to solve for

binarymimicBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
were you given a value of x ? or was this expression equal to something ?

itsjustme_lolBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
nope it was just (X+^6(x6)

binarymimicBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
oh ok.. sorry idk what to solve for. hm.
 one year ago

itsjustme_lolBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
sorry it was as I posted in the question. i didnt mean to put the ^6 its just 6. but hmmm then i guess i should just leave it as it maybe? confusing, i must say

yeah usually they just say "simplify" if there is no equation to solve for anything.

could you confirm my answer on another one? (8a3b4)2 5(8)^2(a)^2(b^4)^2 5(64)(a^2)(b^8) 320(a^6)(b^8)

sorry that was the number im on. idrk how it got there

oh if its not part of the question then.. 64(a^6)(b^8)

hmmmm i wonder how i got 320...thankyou!!

well it looks like you multiplied your answer by the question # 5 o_o
