Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0each cell is the result of multiplying the corresponding row and column headers so the upper left cell is the result of multiplying the two x^3 terms the upper right cell is the result of multiplying x^3 and y^2 etc etc giving you this dw:1362367968379:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0then you add up all the terms and combine like terms if you can to get x^6  y^4 (the x^3y^2 terms will cancel as you got before)
