Question 994738: I have no idea how to do this since I learn (X+2)(X+2) kind of distribute property
(12x^2y^4z^6)(x^3y^5z^7)
Answer by Alan3354(47455) (Show Source):
Question 994716: I have a question my teacher talks about distributive property today and this is what I learn.
(X+2)(X+2) is equal to x^2+4x+4 not x^2+4
I don't understand when to do the distributive property and when to do the actual multiplication with the expression.

You can put this solution on YOUR website! (X+2)(X+2) is equal to x^2+4x+4 not x^2+4

(x+2)*(x+2) = x*(x+2) + 2*(x+2)
= x^2+2x + 2x+4
= x^2 + 4x + 4

I'm convinced.

You can put this solution on YOUR website! Look at the link shown in one of the page's tabs, "For Students".
Follows guidance there.
Ask your question as precisely as you can. If your question is all in words as presented to you in your instructional document or book, then write your question and problem description exactly, wordforword. If your problem includes a figure or picture or graph, try to include or show it if you have the knowledge how to.
Question 994192: My son is in 8th grade he is learning about solving linear equations and properties I have been helping him identity the steps and he got an equation that stumped all 3 of us him me and my husband
2/4z+4=1/2/3z1
Our issues lie in the 1/2 in the numerator we have tried to isolate the z and just getting stumped any advice or guidance on this step apprecciated

You can put this solution on YOUR website! 2/(4z+4)=(1/2)/(3z1)

Crossmultiply to get:
2(3z1) = (1/2)(4z+4)

6z2 = 2z+2

Subtract 2z from both sides:
Add 2 to both sides::

4z = 4
z = 1

Pls. let me know if that is too confusing.

Cheers,

Remove the parentheses.
Collect like terms in the LHS.
Add the additive inverse of the constant term in the LHS to both sides.
Multiply both sides by the reciprocal of the coefficient on the variable.

Question 987321: The height of a triangle is(3x2) dm and its base is half of its height.Find its area
Answer by Cromlix(3061) (Show Source):
You can put this solution on YOUR website! Hi there,
Height = (3x  2)
Base = (3x  2)/2
Base = 1.5x  1
Area = 1/2 (base x height)
Area = 1/2 (1.5x  1)(3x  2)
Area = 1/2(4.5x^2  6x + 2)
Area = 2.25x^2  3x + 1
Hope this helps :)

Question 986204: what propertie is 3(n times 8) =3(8n)
Answer by farohw(153) (Show Source):
You can put this solution on YOUR website! Hello,
This is Commutative property of multiplication. The answer is the same regardless of order. Thus,
3(n times 8) = 3(8n) is true because both sides equal 24n.
left side > 3(n8) = 24n
right side > 3(8n) = 24n

Farohw

I need to know which ones are commutative, associative, identity, or inverse
Answer by stanbon(69061) (Show Source):
You can put this solution on YOUR website! X(Yz)=x(zy):: y and z changed places::: commutative

2(x+y)=2x+2y::: mult. by 2 distributed over addition:: distributive

(X+y)+z=(y+x)+z:: x and y changed places:: commutative

(X+y)+z=x+(y+z):: grouping changes:: associative

2[x(a+d)]=[2x](a+d):: grouping changed:: associative

You can put this solution on YOUR website! NOTE: Edited twice to explain better.
This is just a matter of terminology to justify why each step is made. The properties are presented and clearly stated in your textbook.
, given.
, Order of Operations requires exponentiation first, depending on how quantities are associated  I know of no other law for this.
, Additive Inverse Property; note that the operation inside the parentheses was done BEFORE the multiplication involving the 6; because or again, Order of Operations. WORK inside parentheses FIRST, depending on presence or arrangements of any exponentiations.
, law about multiplication by 0, product is zero  not sure if there is a better name. (This is result of the principle of multiplication by zero; that for any real number a such that , ).
, same as , meaning of subtraction
, Additive Inverse Property
