Did i do this right? here is my problem
(x – 2) (3x4)
Remove the parenthesis x times 3=3x^2.
x times 4 = 4x
2* 3x^2 = 6x^2 2* 4x= 8x
Now we have 6x^2 8x Not sure if i combine or Divide... Guessing i'll combine.
6x^2 +8x = 14^3 < my answer.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2not quite, let's take it from the top (x2)(3x4) let's multiply the first terms x*3x = 3x^2 then the outer terms x*(4) = 4x then the inner terms (2)*(3x) = 6x then the last (2)*(4) = 8 now we combine: 3x^2  4x  6x + 8 = 3x^2  10x + 8

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\(\large (x  2) (3x4)\implies \begin{array}{crllll} x\cdot 3x\implies &3x^2\\ x\cdot 4\implies &4x\\ 2\cdot 3x\implies &6x\\ 2\cdot 4\implies &+8 \end{array}\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Where did the 3x^2 come from didn't we just use that to make 6x? @Vocaloid
