Add up 3x^2  9 and 2x + 9 So (3x^2  9) + (2x + 9) = ???
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
Sorry, I didn't see the first x Add x, 3x^2  9 and 2x+9 (x) + (3x^2  9) + (2x + 9) x + 3x^2  9 + 2x + 9 3x^2 + 3x + 0 3x^2 + 3x
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
So after adding x, 3x^2  9 and 2x + 9, you will get 3x^2 + 3x, which is the total distance covered
 one year ago

sabrinahaley97Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
soo its 3x^2 + 3x
 one year ago

satellite73Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
add them up \[x+3x^2  9+2x + 9\]

they really reach for these "word problems" don't they ?
 one year ago

satellite73Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
they could have said "add the polynomials"

LOLLL yess they do !! Can you guys do me onee more favor and just double check my work ?
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
sure, what do you need to check

ill write the 5 questions and show you my answers
 one year ago

sabrinahaley97Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
1. Simplify the following expression: (x − 8y)  (2x − 4y)If the final answer is written in the form Ax + By, what is the value of B? 2. Simplify: (4x − 6) − (5x + 1) 3. Simplify: (5x^2 + 3x + 4) + (5x^2 + 5x − 1) 4. Simplify: (4x − 6) + (3x + 6) & You helped me with the other 2 questions so i just put the ones i did on my own but these were my answers 1. 4y 2. x7 3. 10x^2 + 8x + 5 4. 7x+12
 one year ago

sabrinahaley97Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
alrighty :] Thanks!!
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
#1 the form is form Ax + By they want the value of B, so the answer cannot be 4y
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
besides, 8y + 4y isn't 4y anyway you lost a sign somewhere
 one year ago

sabrinahaley97Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
Im bad with my signs /: negatives and positives . so confusing
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
think of it like this 8 + 4 is the same as saying you're 8 dollars in debt, but you paid off $4 of that debt, so you're now 4 dollars in debt
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
so that explains how 8 + 4 = 4
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
and why 8y + 4y = 4y
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
# 2 is correct, so congrats on that
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
but not correct fully
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
4 + (1) is NOT 5

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
you have 4 dollars you add on 1 IOU
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
you really have 41 = 3 dollars left (after you pay off the IOU)
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
so that's why 4 + (1) = 4  1 = 3
 one year ago

sabrinahaley97Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
oh alright ! i get it now.
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1

6 means you are $6 in debt add on $6, so you are paying off $6 are you still in debt?
 one year ago

sabrinahaley97Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
nope itd be zero :o
 one year ago

sabrinahaley97Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
so the answers just 7x?
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
so you'd have 7x+0 or just 7x
 one year ago

have you thought of using money terms for negatives before? I'm just curious how your teachers have taught negatives in the past
 one year ago

sabrinahaley97Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
ive heard of it but it was never enforced.
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1

the arrow represents the degree of the monomials incase you didnt already know lol. and i think its d^15??
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
^ means exponents, yes I know and no it's not d^15
 one year ago

Havent even tried it yet lol .but im thinking the ^2 on the outside is going to distribute to the ones in the parenthese?
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
yes that's one way of thinking about it basically you raise each part to the 2nd power
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
x^2 to the 2nd power > x^2 * x^2 = x^(2+2) = x^4
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
y to the second power > y^2

 one year ago

sabrinahaley97Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
heres 2 of the 3
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
and you got what for each
 one year ago

sabrinahaley97Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
How do i simplify them ?
 one year ago

sabrinahaley97Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
just add the exponents?
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
(3d)^3 turns into 27d^3
 one year ago

so (3d)^3 * d becomes 27d^3 * d
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
and that becomes what?
 one year ago

sabrinahaley97Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
alright i struggled a little bit
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
now simplify the other expression

that's ok, just keep practicing it and it'll come more easily to you
 one year ago

sabrinahaley97Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
the second one the exponents are just gonna get added to each other right ?
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
no, when you square something that has an exponent, you are multiplying the exponents
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
ex: (3x^5)^2 > 9x^(5*2) = 9x^(10)
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
so the exponents are different? or equal?
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
so that means you go with C for the first one
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
exponents are the same
 one year ago

sabrinahaley97Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
alright number 8 looks like mumbo jumbo...
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
same thing applies to #8, it's just a bit more complicated maybe
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
they want you to simplify as much as possible, then compare exponents for expressions 1 and 2
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
(2y^2)^3 = 8y^(2*3) = 8y^6
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
(y^9)*(2y^2)^3 turns into y^9 * 8y^6
 one year ago

sabrinahaley97Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
what about that y^9
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
just added it back in so to speak
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
I focused on simplifying (2y^2)^3 first
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
then reintroduced the y^9 back in
 one year ago

sabrinahaley97Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
okay so the first one you just add the like terms now right?
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
yep you add the exponents
 one year ago

sabrinahaley97Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
y^9 * 8y^6 = 9y^15
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
the exponent is correct, but that 8 should stay the same
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
so it's 8y^15
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
silly typo though
 one year ago

sabrinahaley97Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
alright so 8y^15 for the first one ,
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
now simplify the second one using the same steps
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
(2y^3)^2 = ???
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
(9y)(2y^3)^2 becomes 9y*4y^6
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
you multiply the coefficients out front
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
and you add the exponents 1+6 = 7
 one year ago

sabrinahaley97Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
that one was hard lol
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
now compare 8y^15 to 36y^7
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
its ok, it'll get easier over time
 one year ago

sabrinahaley97Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
the first ones exponents are greater than
 one year ago

sabrinahaley97Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
Alright this is my last one .

Part 1: Explain, using complete sentences, how to simplify the expression below. Part 2: What is the simplified expression? (3x^3y^4)(2x^2y^6)
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
the coefficients are 3 and 2 what do you do with these?
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
3 * 2 = 6 is your final coefficient
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
now for each variable, you add the corresponding exponents
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
so for the x terms, you add the exponents 3 and 2 to get 3+2 = 5 5 is the final exponent for x
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
so far so good, now do y
 one year ago

sabrinahaley97Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
well y doesnt have any numbers but every variable is equal to 1 , so would it be 2y^10?
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
don't worry about the coefficient, that's been taken care of already
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
just focus on the exponents for y
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
they are 4 and 6, they add to 4+6 = 10
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
so all together, we get 6x^5y^10
 one year ago

sabrinahaley97Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
alright . so thats the simplied answer?
 one year ago

sabrinahaley97Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
that was easier lol
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
lol depends on how you look at it i guess
 one year ago

sabrinahaley97Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
