    10x^2-25x-16x+25 which would be 10x^2-41x+25

    When you multiply 2 numbers with x's the x's multiply too...which becomes x times x which is x squared...or x²

    let me do it over: 5x(2x-5)-8(2x-5) 10x^2-25x-16x+40 10x^2-41x+40

  30. spidergirl51
    • one year ago

    so 77w2+55w-33w-15

  31. math456

    yea use the same trick with this: 7w(11w-3)+5(11w-3) <- they just replaced x with w's

    is that right

  33. math456

    u got first one right 7w x 3 = 21w

  34. math456
    • one year ago
    Best Response
    You've already chosen the best response.

    so it will be 77w^2-21w+55w-15 77w^2+34w-15
