Please help! I've got a test for a job interview today & there's this question in it & I'm not sure how to approach it? Can anyone help? Thanks!

(x-2)(3x-3)=?

(x-2)(3x-3)=?

FOIL

Front, outside, inside, last.

3x^2-3x-6x+6

=3x^2-9x+6

Front, outside, inside, last.

3x^2-3x-6x+6

=3x^2-9x+6

No offense, but if you're asking the Pit for answers to a question in a job interview..you don't deserve the job.

3x^2-3x-6x+6

=3x^2-9x+6

there you go.

eh, its high school algebra. Most of us know it, its just really easy to forget

Yep, pretty simple foil problem really.

3x^2 - 6x - 3x + 6Please help! I've got a test for a job interview today & there's this question in it & I'm not sure how to approach it? Can anyone help? Thanks!

(x-2)(3x-3)=?

= 3x^2 - 9x + 6

Uhhh.....FOIL

Front, outside, inside, last.

3x^2-3x-2x+6

=3x^2-5x+6

= 3x^2 - 9x + 6

Uhhh.....

Oh, yeah, 3x. My bad. It's the summer, I don't do maths during the summer!

Why didn't you go to the Maths & Science Help Thread? I mean, now that your question has been answered, I know, but still?

#11

Thanks guys! I've been going over my maths study & just couldn't remember how to do this one! Thanks again!

#12

e^i*x-i*sin(x)-cos(x). Welcome.

#13

I hate maths. Just to let you know .

#14

Pfft, I took this algebra in 7th grade (Year 8 for you UKers, I believe.)

#15

Haha you dumb shit! Hahahahahaha....

I didn't know the answer either

This. It's not a random test, they need to know if you're actually qualified for the job.
