\[x^2 - 13 \]
\[(x+5)^2 - 13\]
\[x^2 + 20x + 25 - 13\]
what are the answer choices?

- anonymous

−12
3
−13
8
How did you get 20x ?

- lalaland_lauren

because of (x+5)(x+5) since it's squared

- anonymous

Okay , that makes sense

So you're using the FOIL method right ?

- lalaland_lauren

FOIL? What's that?

- anonymous

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!

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.

- anonymous

(f − g)(−2) is f[g(−4)] though

- lalaland_lauren

\[f(x)=x^2-13\]
\[g(x)=x+5\]
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?

- lalaland_lauren

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

- anonymous

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 ?

- lalaland_lauren

"And your height too, I promise you this isn't for creepy reasons." XD

- anonymous

Hahahahah exactly "just my algebraa teacher wants to know" xD
