Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2The expression is this right? \[\Large 4x  y^2\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2to start off, replace every x with 3 (since x = 3) \[\Large 4\color{red}{x}  y^2\] \[\Large 4(\color{red}{3})  y^2\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Then replace every y with 2 \[\Large 4(3)  \color{red}{y}^2\] \[\Large 4(3)  (\color{red}{2})^2\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0That's what I meant. How you drew it out before kind of like \[4*4*4\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2well in the case of 4*3, it's simply 4 times 3, which is 12

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2that's different from 4^3, which is 4 to the third power

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2btw, 4(3) is another way of saying 4*3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.04? I have a feeling that that's incorrect.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2you were correct about the 4 part, it's just positive and not negative 2 times 2 = +4

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2\[\Large \color{red}{4(3)}  \color{blue}{(2)^2}\] \[\Large \color{red}{12}  \color{blue}{4}\]
