Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0wait so it'd be 3, multiplicity 2; 5, multiplicity 2? @Azteck

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Go by what you did in question 1. If what you wrote just now matches what you did in question 1, then you know it's correct.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Your new answer is correct, you switched the zeroes and the multiplicity for question 2 in your original answer.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So they are both correct now? @TimSmit

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Dude, be confident of what you put. Being dependent on us strangers rather than feeling that the answer is correct means you're not confident at all.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1They are correct :) but as azteck says, you came close to the solution yourself which shows you understand, but mixed two numbers, it happens.
