Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0when i try to substitute the f(x) to the 3[f(2x)] i can't get the answer

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2You substitute 2x into f(x), then multiply through the whole thing by 3.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Hmmm... and yes, if that is written right, I can see why that would not get an answer.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Is it supposed to be \(3[f(2)]\)?? Rather than 2x?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Yes, as written, \(108x^2 + \cfrac{9}{2}\) would be correct.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2\((2x)^2=4x^2\) \(3\times 4x^2=12x^2\) \(3\times 12x^2=36x^2\) Which is what I got the first time... and when you said 108 I thought I had forgotten to multiply by 3.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2\(36x^2 + \cfrac{9}{2}\) is what it should be.
