is that x squared minus 13?
okay so here's how it goes
\[x^2 - 13 \] \[(x+5)^2 - 13\] \[x^2 + 20x + 25 - 13\] what are the answer choices?
−12 3 −13 8 How did you get 20x ?
because of (x+5)(x+5) since it's squared
Okay , that makes sense
So you're using the FOIL method right ?
FOIL? What's that?
Sorry , I was thinking of something else . Its another way to figure out polynomials and trinomials and such .
Crap crap crap I did the whole thing wrong, disregard what I said!
I'm redoing the whole problem, give me a minute
This might take a while lol xD
Hahahaha its all good ! xp
Consider the functions f(x) = 3x − 2 and g(x) = x2 − 1. What is the value of (f − g)(−2)? Okay, x=(-2) f(-2) =3*(-2) - 2 f(-2) = -6 -2 f(-2) = -8 g(-2) = (-2)^2 − 1 g(-2) = 4 -1 g(-2) = 3 (f-g) = -8 - 3 I think you can figure it out from there.
(f − g)(−2) is f[g(−4)] though
\[f(x)=x^2-13\] \[g(x)=x+5\] and you're trying to find f[g(-4)], so since it shows that g(x) = -4, you plug it in, after you plug in the f(g) however, SOOOO \[(x-5)-13\] \[(-4+5) - 13\] got it?
So , Im guessing my answer is -12 ?
Do you understand it now?
sorry, i tried to help
Thank you so much ! These trinomials drive me crazy ! I understand it 10x more
They drive me crazy too xD are you taking FLVS? because I literally just finished this a few hours ago
I am actually ! Im taking my EOC tomorrow and all my exams I am finally finishing Monday , what a summer break
lol i feel ya!!!!!!
What teacher do you have? We might have the same one lol
Ya know ! It sucks , but Im happy to get it all finished with && I have Ms. Johnson
I have to finish Algebra 1 Segment 2 and all segments of World History before summer ends *sigh* Aww I have Ms. McManus :(
That sucks ! I still have my English 1 to finish including my essay and stuff , Algebra 1 is the worst , Im terrible at math -__- If you ever need help on World History I got ya ! I just finished that !
I've got the collaboration for segment two of english one so I'm basically done lol, and thanks! by any chance do you have 1.02 for world history? I gotta do that xD
You're my savior!!!!!! :D
By the way, you can alwaays ask me for help on any of the assessments for algebra, I'm getting A's all over the place lol :)
I can give you the answers to them and stuffsssssss
I got chu !(:&& 'heck' yeah lol ! Im on 9.02 right now , Im just now getting used to this module , 8.07 confused me so much though , but I skipped it , Im trying to see if Ill get away with it xp
Well, I haven't done my welcome call yet and I've skipped all the DBA's and tests and I'm already 1/3 through lol! The only assignment I skipped though is 6.06 I think, since I need like 12 people for the scatter plot thing and I'm too shy and socially awkward to ask people if I can measure them lmao
Hahahahah trust me I feel you on that ! It is kind of an awkward subject to go up to people and ask , hey can I measure your arm length ?
"And your height too, I promise you this isn't for creepy reasons." XD
Hahahahah exactly "just my algebraa teacher wants to know" xD
