helpppppp math pleaseee
If (4X+2)(2x-3) is written in standard form, what is the value of C?

Standard form is ax2 + bx + c = 0. You want to multiply out the two parentheses. Some people call that FOIL.
(4x + 2)(2x - 3) original problem
4x(2x - 3) + 2(2x-3) distribution
4x2 -12x + 4x -6 more distribution
4x2 -8x - 6 combine like terms
c = -6 c is the term with no variable
The standard from is ax^2 + bx + c, where "c" is a free term. If you factor the quadratic expression then the free term equals to the product of free terms in binomials: - 2 and (-3). Thus, your answer is c= - 6.
