Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2to fill this table out, we just multiply the headers example: 2 times 3 = 6 which goes in the second row, second column dw:1440551792711:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2now you just add up everything in the boxes \[\Large xy + 2x + 3y + 6\] there are no like terms to combine so we leave it as that

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2this all means \[\Large (x+3)(y+2) = xy + 2x + 3y + 6\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2you cannot add 3x to 2y to get 5x or 5y or 5xy they aren't like terms

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2\(\Large xy + 2x + 3y + 6\) is as simplified as it gets

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2there is no y term other than the 3y the xy cannot be added to 3y to get 4y

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so i dont need to use horizontal or vertical method?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2you could if you want, but I prefer the table.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2the horizontal or vertical method makes it hard to keep track of the individual terms whereas the table doesn't have that problem

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so are there going to be other probs where they are more simplified?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2yes, for example (x+2)(x7) dw:1440552711856:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2we now have like terms 2x and 7x they combine to 5x

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2so, (x+2)(x7) = x^2  5x  14
