1. ## basic algebra

pls help with following questions! im really stuck... and pls explain with full setting out,,, im w8ing for a genius to save me!!!
(s+1)(3s+2)
(d-2)(3d+5)
(a+3)(4-1)
(a+b)(a-b)
(3s-t)^2
(h-5)(2h+4)
(5-f)^2
(1+2x)(4+3x)
(h+3)(3h-4)
(1+7k)(5-k)
(3s-5t)(4s-2t)
(8-5r)(1-r)
(2y-7z)(5y-4z)
(2d-3c)(2d+3c)
(t+7)^2
(3+y)^2
(a+2b)^2
(2e+3f)^2
(p-5)^2
(x-y)^2
(d-2e)^2
(3p-5q)^2
I'm Sorry for the huge workload
thanks SO MUCH

You have got to be kidding!!

Do yourself a favour - read this.

3. I can only assume that your question is to expand the following expressions.
What problem are yo having here ? have you been showed how to do anythng like this before ?

$(s+1)(3s+2) = s \cdot 3s + s \cdot 2 + 1 \cdot 3s + 1 \cdot 2$
$\Rightarrow (s+1)(3s+2) = 3s^2 + 2s + 3s + 2$
$\Rightarrow (s+1)(3s+2) = 3s^2 + 5s + 2$

oh w8
mayb i havent explained the situation properly.
im 12, you see. not a kind a genius uni student

When i was 12 I knew how to read. someone has explained how to do one of them, Read my post.

you will be surprised how many of you academic issues can be solved with a tiny bit of reading.

N.B Please make an effort to use correct English.

6. can i try one?
so....
(a+b)(a-b)
=a^2-ab+ab-b^2?
so...
=a^2-b^2?

=a^2-b^2?
Yes

Well done.

9. is it ok if i ask more l8r?
thx so much 4 ur encouragement

(3st)^2

You really should take some time to actually learn all this basic algebra as opposed to rushing your homework to please your teacher.

I am not going not give you any further help. I suggest you do what you can and ask your teacher for help with what your stuck on tomorrow

$(3st)^2$ => $3^2s^2t^2$ then $9s^2t^2$

13. trial:
(h-5)(2h+4)
=2h^2+4h-10h-20
=2h^2-6h-20

14. am i correct?

15. If I was a moderator I would close this thread.
