Hey im trying to study for my EOCTs(End of course tests) and i want to make sure that i get the easy stuff before studing the harder stuff. so my question that i have is simple but i think i need help with it, not cause im stupid but because i want to make sure im studying the right stuff.
here is the question: Multiply (4x + 1)(4x - 3)
so i think to solve this problem i need to use the foil method. wich is first inner outher last.
so here are my steps shown.
1. First- (4x X 4x)=16x squared
2. outer-(4x X -3)= - 12x
3.inner- (1 X 4x)= 4x
4. last- (1 X -3) = -3
after this step i think i am lost. can i please have help to answer the rest of the problem step by step. all help would be very appreatiated.
