Hi, me and my friend think two completely different answers to the same question the question is 4pq

if p = 3 and q = -6

the 2 different answers are

a) 4x3x-6

b) 12-24

Please can you tell us which is right or are we both wrong?

If so what is the answer and how do you do it

• math -

Do you mean
4pq = ?? if p = 3 and q = -6; then
4*3*(-6) is correct and that equals -72.

• math -

can you tell us the formula as we have no equal sign after the question?

• math -

I suppose the formula is 4pq. Your question must ask you to solve for the following when? or something to that effect.
