Hey guys,

Just a quick one.. brain freeze on what to do in this case..

=3-2(8x^2-1)^2

Now, will I apply the exponent first, or the 2? And if apply the exponent first, what will I multiply the 2 by.. the entire product of the exponent?

I seem to remember from my math laws that you have to expand the brackets first, but I am unsure if this includes the 2 outside the bracket..

Thanks
