no, try expanding your answer, you will not get the original.

should be

9D^3(2 + 5D^3)

well it says:

A 9D(2D+5D^5)

B 6D^2(3+9D^4)

C 3D^2(6+15D^4)

D 9D^2(2+5D^4)

And none of those answers , when expanded , will give you the original question the way you typed it.

So what do you think????

1. Did you expand D ?

2. Did you check the typing of your original question?
