Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0This problem involves the distributive property. You need to multiply the term outside the parentheses, 4x, by each term inside the parentheses, 2x^2, 7x, and 3.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0In order to multiply two terms, you need to multiply together the number parts, and multiply together the variables. For example: 2x * 4x = 2 * 4 * x * x = 8x^2 3x^2 * 6x^3 = 18x^5
