Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Wow! So first off, you must distribute into the parentheses. So lets do one at a time. 2(3x4) is saying 2 x 3x + 2 x 4. can you solve this?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0great. Now that is raised to the power of 2 so it becomes 6x^2 + 8x^2 correct?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Would you add 6 to 8 which gives you 2 and then square it?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0good so now lets move on... the next part is tricky but you have to pay attention. even though it says (4 3x) its really saying 1 x 4  1 x 3x what is 1 x 4  1 x 3x?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh to answer your previous question, you wouldn't add them, because they aren't the same terms. one has an exponent and one doesn't

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You're multiplying it by 1 which gives you the same rhing

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes, but you have to understand the concept because that basically what this hole problem is

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so now we have 6x^2 + 8x^2 + 4 3x the last part is basically the same thing. so now we have 6x^2 + 8x^2 + 4  3x +1 +2x right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so now what we do is we combine like terms.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0not quite... whats 6x^2 + 8x^2? 6 + 8 = ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.05 great! now what would 3x + 2x be?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Great!! So in the end the final answer actually changes. You write you answer from highest to lowest degree of exponent. Answer: 2x^2  1x + 5
