I was given this problem to solve and no matter what order I multiply the variables I don't get the right answer.

27xy, when x=12.7 and y=100.4

I cannot figure out the way to achieve this answer.

I find problems with variable fairly easy, but this one with double variables is very confusing. There is not example in the text to help with this.

The problem to solve is: (x+20)(x-12)(x+4)>0 but I can't figure out how to do this right so I left off the >0 and tried to solve the equation. x+20 evaluates to x+20 x-12 evaluates to x-12 Multiplying x+20 by x-12 is a classic
