how about expanding each option to get the equation. consequently whichever option gives the given equation is the right answer. #capeesh
option A is the answer

if u expand option a which is (a)(x+y+6) (b)(x+y-3)by multiplyin both dat is bracket a to bracket b

u will get x^2+xy-3x+xy+y^2-3y+6x+6y-18

then collect like terms u get

x^2+2xy+y2+3x+3y-18 which was d question u were u given 2 factorize tanks

Here is an explanation:

TO DIVIDE BY FIRST CONVERTING FROM BASE 6 TO BASE 10 2434base6 to base10 is 2x6^3 + 4x6^2 + 3x6^1 + 4x6^0=

432 + 144 + 18 + 4 =598.

42 base6 to base 10 is 4x6^1 + 2x6^0= 24 + 2= 26.

598/26= 23.

back to base 6= 23/6=2 R 5. 2/6 = 0 R 2. THE FINAL ANSWER IS 25 BASE6.the direct division will be coming soon. thank you.

X^2 2xy y^2 3x 3y-18=(x y)^2 3(x y)-18

let (x y) be p,and subtitute to the equ.

= p^2 3p-18

=p^2 6p-3p-18

=p(p 6)-3(p 6)

=(p-3)(p 6)

recall: p=x y,sutitute to the answer

=(x y-3)(x y 6).

In my own understand i wil say d answer is D when u factorize mutiple your answer it were give u back d same as in d queation. Option D is (x y-6)(x y 3) let mutiple it back now it wil give u something like dis X2 xy 3x xy Y2 3y-18 collect d like terms which wil giv now as X2 2xy Y2 3x 3y-18. Thank u

samie fully says a is correct. guys remmbr if u choose option d,u gt 3x-6x + 3y-6y wch wil gv x^2+ 2xy+y^2-3x-3y-18 wch iz nt in line wt d questn.
