Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.02x(x+18)  x(4x2) You copied the problem correctly. That's the first step. 2x^2+36x  4x 2x Line above. Be careful distributing the x in the second parentheses. A negative outside the parentheses changes every sign inside the parentheses. Also, remember, x(x) = x^2 The above line should read: 2x^2 + 36x  4x^2 + 2x Notice 4x^2, not 4x, and notice the +2x, not 2x at the end.
