got a guess for this one?

2. gaara438125 Group Title

do you know how to distribute?

3. mikaa_toxica13 Group Title

well the teacher told me its 3

5. mikaa_toxica13 Group Title

o.O thats somethin i dont hear everyday lol

"do you know how to distribute?"

7. mikaa_toxica13 Group Title

uhmmm kinda. but ill probably get it wrong.

8. gaara438125 Group Title

Just the distribute −6x^2 and -2 that'll make it so you can narrow the answer down to the correct one, or you can do the rest too lol

9. satellite73 Group Title

$−6x^2(4x − 7x^2 − 2)$ $=-6x^2\times 4x-6x^2\times (-7x^2)-6x^2\times (-2)$ is the first step

10. satellite73 Group Title

as @gaara438125 said, the last term will be $$+12x^2$$ which narrows the answer to one choice

11. mikaa_toxica13 Group Title

yup. thanks guys. but can u explain it fully ? i dont jus want the answers.

12. mikaa_toxica13 Group Title

and i have no idea who to give the fan/medal too lol

13. gaara438125 Group Title

satellite73 explained the process $−6x^2(4x − 7x^2 − 2)$ $(-6x^2\times 4x) + (-6x^2\times -7x^2) + (-6x^2\times -2)$

14. mikaa_toxica13 Group Title

is there another way to do it ?
