How much does each column or row add up to? Have you tried calculating one of them yet? :)
Like just try the top row maybe, \(\large\rm x+8x-3x\)
I will try
yes i tried that now
well I see a pattern
it is 2x?
Yes, the missing amount is a 2x. I'm not what pattern you're talking about though.. hmm
everything adds up to 6x....with the 2x in the middle
but when I add up the first row accrues, I get 5x^2
That's what I was hoping you would figure out on your own, that the add up to 6x, but oh well...
but I added up the first across and it doesn't equal 6x...?
\[\large\rm apple+apple\ne apple^2\]Not sure where the square came from, hmm :d
\[\large\rm apple+apple = two~apples\]
but don't two x equal x^2???
not when adding, just when multiplying
\(\large\rm x+x\ne x^2\) no :(
oh oak forgot that rule
x + x = 2x x * x = x^2
you have `an apple`, `8 more apples`, then `take away 3 apples`.
but if everything is supposed to equal to 6x then why doesn't the first row equal that??? They are all supposed to be equal
how many apples?
they do equal 6x
x+8x-3x doesn't equal 6?
1 + 8 - 3 = ?
ok OK haha i got it
i forgot that X counted as a 1
