^{2}+ 16x + 16)

- Now distribute the 2

^{2}+ 32x + 32

9 = 2(2x + 4)2, 9 = 2(4x2 + 16x + 16), 9 = 8x2 + 32x + 32 How did the 16x come about?

9 = 2(2x + 4)^{2}

- n
^{2}= (n)(n)

- Using the distributive property of multiplication (a + b)(c + d) = ac + ad + bc + bd
- We sometimes refer to this as FOIL (First, Outer, Inner, Last)

9 = 2(4x^{2} + 8x + 8x + 16)

9 = 2(4x^{2} + 16x + 16)

- Now distribute the 2

Did that help?

For 16x to be there the equation had to be 9 = 2(2x + 4)^{2}

Now solving 9 = 2(2x + 4)^{2}

9 = 2(2x + 4)(2x + 4)

opening the brackets

9 = 2(4x^{2} + 8x + 8x +16)

9 = 2(4x^{2} + 16x + 16) .................so 16x comes from 8x + 8x

further more opening the brackets 2 multiplies everything in it

9 = 8x^{2 }+ 32x + 32
