Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0A greenhouse that specializes in growing geraniums is divided into sections. The number of geranium pots in each section depends on the number of sprinklers in that section. There are x(7x − 2) pots of red geraniums and (x + 3)2 pots of pink geraniums in a section with x sprinklers. Which simplified expression represents the total number of red and pink geranium pots in a section with x sprinklers? 8x2 + 4x + 9 8x2 + 6x + 9 8x2 + 6x + 7 8x4 + 4x2 + 9

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1you have to FOIL

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[\Large (a+b)^2 \neq a^2 + b^2\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[\Large (a+b)^2 = (a+b)*(a+b)\] then FOIL

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ooh, this method is completely new to me. So would the top left be x^2?

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yes since x times x = x^2 dw:1434587719782:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1then we add up all of the expressions inside the table dw:1434587822641:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so (x+3)^2 = x^2 + 6x + 9

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1now add 7x^2  2x and x^2 + 6x + 9 to get your answer

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@jim_thompson5910 One more thing. You should really be a qualified helper. You are so good at breaking down the steps to a point where really anyone can understand it. You really should get paid to do help others if you don't already.
