Simplify the polynomial [(6x8)2x][(12x7)(4x5)].
I came up with two answers:
36x^2  72x + 35 or
12x^2 + 8x  2
Are either one of these the correct answer?

let's see...
[(6x8)2x][(12x7)(4x5)]
[6x82x][12x74x+5]
[4x8][8x2]
4x88x+2
8x6
Unless you have dropped some exponents or mistyped some operators ...
