Jenny508, try applying the same concept from the previous problem I answered for you and you will be able to figure this guy out. ^_^

2. jenny508

3X-6Y

3. General_Gustav

Exactly! :D You got it!

4. jenny508

Lol :-)

5. General_Gustav

The only thing is that you should be careful of your signs What is a negative multiplied by a negative?

6. General_Gustav

Sorry for speaking so quickly, there is a very small error in your answer...think about the question about the product of two negatives above and revise your answer

7. jenny508

3x+2y

8. General_Gustav

You're on the right track. For the x terms, we get 6x-3x, which is equal to 3x For the y terms we get -3*-2y, which would equal 6, but is that six positive or negative?

9. jenny508

3x+6y

10. jenny508

or 3x-6y

11. General_Gustav

Right, its one of those two answers. In this case, since you are multiplying two negatives (3 and 2) the result will be positive 6. So the answer 3x+6y would be the correct one in this case.
