A film set designer is using white and colored tiles in a pattern to create paths of different lengths. If x is the length of the path in feet, the number of colored tiles needed to make it is calculated using the rule
(8x2y2)(3xy)
where y represents the number of white tiles.
Which simplified expression represents the number of colored tiles used for a path of length x feet?
24x3y3
11x3y3
24x2y2
11x2y2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes you get 24, and yes the x^2 * x gives x^3 and ditto for the y's

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0if you remember that x^2 is short for x*x and if you multiply by another x you get x*x*x you could write the answer as 24*x*x*x*y*y*y but people use the "short way" to write it 24 x^3 y^3
