use the distributive property \[a(b\pm c)=ab\pm ac\]
using this you take the first variable of the first and multiply it by the second parenthesis and same with the second variable/constant of the first \[a(a-2)+3(a-2)\]
what do you get when yo udo this?

So then i got: 2a-2a + 3a-6
But I dont think that is right lol
everything but your first multiplication is correct \[a(a)\neq 2a\]
hint: when you have a number to a power you get this correct \[2^2=2*2\]
so \[a*a=?\]
uhhh 2 squared ???
not quite so 2 is the base
in \[2^2\]
the power tells you how many times you multiply that base by itself
so \[2^3=2*2*2\] \[2^5=2*2*2*2*2\]
so in your case \[ a*a\] a is your base and the number of bases you multiply is your power
so \[a*a=a^2\]
I know how to do powers lol. I just dont know what \[a \times a\] is
oh okay lol
I think it's just the variable thats giving you a tough time if it helps let a be whatever you want and then replace it back with a. For example i have \[a*a*a*a\] in your head think a=5 \[5*5*5*5=5^4\] replace 5 with a
some someone let her do the last one
so would it be \[a ^{2}-5a -6\] ?
\[-2a+3a\] if you have 3 dollars and lost 2 dollars, how many do you have now =]
