im guessing you have to expand this...??

Not really sure if i do or not all they gave me was (x+6)^2?

Have you ever done problems that asked you "to expand" an expression?

Nope.

Lets start from this. \(\large\color{black}{\rm \displaystyle expression\text{#}1(expression\text{#}2) }\) is same thing as \(\large \color{black}{\rm expression\text{#}1~\cdot~expression\text{#}2}\) you know that right?
anonymous
  • anonymous
? What is expression 1 and 2 suppose to mean?
SolomonZelman
  • SolomonZelman
any expreesions, i am just naming them like this.
SolomonZelman
  • SolomonZelman
this is equivalent to saying a(b) is same as saying a•b
anonymous
  • anonymous
Okay.
SolomonZelman
  • SolomonZelman
good.
SolomonZelman
  • SolomonZelman
So, if I say a(b), then I know that it is a•b and it would be the same thing as a•b.
SolomonZelman
  • SolomonZelman
(Just trying to get general way of writing things straight)
SolomonZelman
  • SolomonZelman
a(b) = a•b = ab
SolomonZelman
  • SolomonZelman
all 3 parts are same...
anonymous
  • anonymous
Alright
SolomonZelman
  • SolomonZelman
now, if I said: a(b+c), then what am I really doing? a(b+c) = a•(b+c) = a•b+a•c=ab+ac
SolomonZelman
  • SolomonZelman
I am multiplying everything inside the parenthesis times a.
SolomonZelman
  • SolomonZelman
is this making some sense?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Yeah, just not sure what this has to do with the problem i asked.

\(\large (x+6)^2 \implies (x+6)(x+6)\implies \begin{cases} x\cdot x\implies &?\\ x\cdot 6\implies &?\\ 6\cdot x\implies &?\\ 6\cdot 6\implies &? \end{cases}\)

  • anonymous
Okay think i got it. x*x = X^2, x*6 = x^6, 6*x= 6x and 6*6 = 36
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
(x+6)^2 is the same as (x+6)*(x+6) squaring something means you're multiplying it by itself To expand out (x+6)*(x+6) you can use the FOIL rule but I like a table better because you can use a table for things that FOIL can't do |dw:1437695027927:dw|
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
To fill out the table, you multiply the headers example: x times x = x^2 |dw:1437695125576:dw|
anonymous
  • anonymous
yeah.
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
you said `x*x = X^2, x*6 = x^6, 6*x= 6x and 6*6 = 36` so this is reflected in the table |dw:1437695217158:dw|
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
The last thing to do is add up x^2, 6x, 6x, and 36 (all the terms found in the table). Combining like terms if any.
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
oh just noticed you wrote `x*6 = x^6` it should be x*6 = 6x
anonymous
  • anonymous
Okay.
anonymous
  • anonymous
Sooo?
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
what do you get when you add up x^2, 6x, 6x, and 36
anonymous
  • anonymous
48x^2
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
you can't combine 6x with 36 to get 42x
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
6x and 36 aren't like terms
anonymous
  • anonymous
12x^2
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
6x + 6x = ???
anonymous
  • anonymous
Were adding right? 12x^2
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
6 apples + 6 apples = ______ apples
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
the x doesn't become x^2 when you add 6x+6x
anonymous
  • anonymous
Oh, 6x+6x =12x
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
so we get x^2+12x+36
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
that's as far as we can go because there are no other like terms left to combine
anonymous
  • anonymous
Alright. Thanks @jim_thompson5910
