Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.08(x^21)+3x(x+2) When you distribute the 8 by the first set of parentheses, you will get 2 unlike terms, one in x^2 and one constant term. When you distribute the 3x by the second set of parentheses, you will get two unlike terms, one in x^2 and one in x. How many total unlike terms do you have after distributing twice?
