Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1You could plug in some numbers to see if your answer makes sense :) Let's say he collected `2 red marbles` and `2 blue marbles`. Hmm red marbles are 4 points each, so that's 8 points for the red. Blue marbles are 3 points each, so that's 6 points for the blue. Gives us a total of 14 points. If we use your formula in D, 7(2red)(2blue)=28 Woops! Doesn't seem to work.
