Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Sorry 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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You're on the right track. For the x terms, we get 6x3x, which is equal to 3x For the y terms we get 3*2y, which would equal 6, but is that six positive or negative?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Right, 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.
