Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[(2+h)(42h^2+h^2)=84h+2h^2+4h2h^2+h^3\] is what I get.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I only get \[8+h^3\] when i factor out \[(2+h)(42h+h^2)\] from \[(2+h)\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1You shouldn't be using that rule, that rule is for \[a^3 + b^3 = (a + b) ( a^2  ab + b^2)\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1you multiply (2+h) times itself 3 times bc it is cubed (2+h)(2+h)(2+h) *I distribute the first 2 then I distribute to the 3rd one. 4+ 2h+2h+h^2(2+h)
