Q:
# if 2 less than the product of 3 and x is squared, the result is y. what is y in terms of x? a. y=(3x-2)^2 b. y=3x^2-2 c.y=3(x^2-2) d. y=(3x)^2-2 HELP ME ASAPPLEASEEEEE

Accepted Solution

A:

Well let's break this down:

2 less than the product of 3 and x is squared means:

the product of 3 and x is squared-2

the product of 3 and x is squared means

(3x) squared

or

(3x)^2

Now combine that with your first deduction to get

(3x)^2-2 or D

2 less than the product of 3 and x is squared means:

the product of 3 and x is squared-2

the product of 3 and x is squared means

or

(3x)^2
