Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.15b * 6b = 5 * 6 * b * b = 30b^2 5b * 10 = 5 * 10 * b = 50b 5b(6b  10) = 5b*6b  5b*10 = 30b^2  50b

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.111b = 5b + 6b. You added 5b and 6b. You need to multiply them together: 5b * 6b = 30b^2 Also, the 10 inside the parenteses must also be multiplied by 5b, so 5b * 10 = 50b 5b(6b  10) = 30b^2  50b
