Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1You can treat the (3x^2 + 1) as a single term and distribute it.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes can you do that for me to show me?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1For example... \[\large \color{blue}{(3x + 4)}(7x^2 9x +8)\] distribute the "term" on the left (the one in blue) \[\large \large 7x^2\color{blue}{(3x + 4)} 9x\color{blue}{(3x + 4)} +8\color{blue}{(3x + 4)}\] And now, each of these individual terms, you also distribute. It's just repeated distribution.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1It defeats the purpose... besides, giving the answer outright is highly discouraged... much better if you can find it on your own, with some help, of course. Come on, you can do this, it's very similar to what I did, just distribute the entire shebang in the parentheses.... :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I think it'd be easier to see your mistake if you post your process... that way, if you did make a mistake, it'd be easier to spot where you did it so you don't do it again. :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I did solve it, unfortunately, only mentally, so I don't have a complete process Surely you do... don't you? :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Nope. Of course I could be wrong... mental calculation is so prone to human error, but i didn't get the same answer.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1:) I'm withholding it until you show me your process... sorry, giving the final answer is highly discouraged... check the Code of Conduct...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1@mo913 Looking for answers wont help you at all .Besides our users never give the answers away .They just help you on your problem instead of working out the entire problem .We need the asker to put some effort on solving the question .That will do you wonders in your studies .

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1This asker was able to solve a systems problem in detail... so isn't systems a more advanced topic than simple distribution and combining like terms? http://openstudy.com/study#/updates/511abaade4b03d9dd0c343e4
