Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2I got B I plugged in 2 numbers that would work A=2 and b=1 and plugged in to see which have the highest answer

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Work 2(1+2) = 6 (1+2)^2 = 9 2^2 + 1^2 = 5 2^2  1^2 = 3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0*when you multiplied

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0they are the same except one is multiplying by 2 and the other is multiplying by ^2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Would something like "I found 2 numbers that worked with the criteria I was given and plugged them into each answer choice to see which one gave me the largest answer" work?? Or does it have to be step by step?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0they are not the same. the first one is multiplied by 2. Distribute the 2. The second is raised to the power of 2. \((a + b)² = (a + b)(a + b)\). You can FOIL that

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Step by step Im pretty sure

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2One is multiplying by 2 and the other is squaring the answer. It makes a big difference

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yep! I see now how you got that.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0tbh @Utterly_Confuzzled strategy is what you would want to use on the actual ACT

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yeah, true. ok! So thats basically how I would solve the problem???

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0what @Utterly_Confuzzled said ? And it is B?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yeah. Is plugging in numbers what you're looking for in the way of an explanation.

Utterly_Confuzzled

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Yes it's B And I think they meant finding two numbers that work and just plugging them in

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Okay! Thanks to both of you

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the only thing I'd suggest with plugging in numbers is to not use 1 or 0. In this case it works out, but they can be wonky depending on the scenario

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0okay, but what utterly said should be sufficient?? In explaining my answer?

Utterly_Confuzzled

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2@peachpi is right, it's normally safest not to use 0 or 1 And I believe it should suffice.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0are you looking for an algebraic explanation, or a "this is how I would solve the problem" explanation

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@peachpi this is how Id solve the problem

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0well you want to say you plugged them into all four options and B was the highest
