Re: Simplify the following:Let me know how you do. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #53 20130722 02:03:38

Re: Simplify the following:It is an acronym and it means First, Outer, Inner and Last. Want to try this one using it? In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #60 20130723 02:47:00
Re: Simplify the following:We have: We use FOIL to multiply it. F means First, so we take the first term of each one and multiply them. What is the answer?

Re: Simplify the following:That is correct, hold on to that. What do you get? In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

Re: Simplify the following:That is correct, now hold on to that. What do you get? In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

Re: Simplify the following:That is correct a mundo!. Hold on to that. What do you get? In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

Re: Simplify the following:You added the exponents correctly but what about that  in front of the second term? In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #71 20130723 04:35:09
Re: Simplify the following:Errr okay, I see it should be x^ 0= 1. Is that correct? #73 20130723 04:39:19
Re: Simplify the following:But sir, I think the negative sign is affecting the 'X' and not its power, please could you explain? Last edited by EbenezerSon (20130723 04:40:35) #74 20130723 04:41:29
Re: Simplify the following:(x^0) is  (1) which equals 1. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it.

Re: Simplify the following:Errr okay, I understand it now, any number raising to the power zero is 1 therefore the 1 should take the sign of the x, Because is the x that makes the 1. I am right sir?
