## anonymous one year ago Simplify: (3x - 8) (2x - 2)

1. pooja195

Use the FOIL method

2. pooja195

3. pooja195

^like that

4. anonymous

i don't know how to do that

5. calculusxy

So first, you would distribute 3x to the numbers within the second parentheses. (First, outer) Then, you would do 8 to 2x and 2. (Inner, Last)

6. pooja195

$\rm~(3x)(2x)+(3x)(−2)+(−8)(2x)+(−8)(−2)$

7. calculusxy

Using @pooja195 's expression, multiply the terms and then simplify them.

8. calculusxy

*Then, you would do 8 to 2x and -2
