checking problem
Use FOIL to multiply:
(6x – 1)(3x – 4)
6x*3x + 6x*(-4) + (-1)*3x + (-1)*(-4) =
6x*3x = 18x^2
6x*-4 = -24x
-1*3x = -3x
-1* -4 = 4

18x^2 – 24x -3x +4 =
18x^2 – 27x + 4

2. Thankyou.

Any insight on this next one?

(x^4y^6z^12/9^-2x^3y^-8z^-9)^0

I am not sure why but i get the answer
1/9^0

I was thinking the ^0 multiplies everything to 0 but the 9.

but i really could be wrong, hopefully someone else can help u with this one cause im not positive!

Thank you I did figure it out i think: so the problem was ((w)-(1)/(4))^2 The final answer that i got was w^2-(1)/(2)w+ (1)/(16) Sorry, no again. :) Make sure you really look at how to multiply binomials and FOIL them out. It will
