Not sure where this would go, so here it goes. I'm doing a summer packet for math, and I've forgotten how to do the FOIL method. I know the general idea, but it's just a little thing that might mess me up. Here's a picture to make better sense of my situation. And of course I know I'll still need to simplify it.

THIS is why I didn't take math once I had my credits... Who needs to know this besides scientists and other mathematical type jobs? Do you have to find the value of G and H? Maybe I'll try it... (>_>)

I want to become a programmer, and supposedly that needs that I take a lot of math. You just have to simplify it, you don't have to find the values.

bottom one, u add exponents when u multiply equations and where did u get g to the 26th and h to the 20th. u only add them up once. sorry if that makes no sense i can try to explain if it doesnt

fuck that math. haven't done shit like that in years. my brain doesn't do things like that anymore. it just gets fried and dozes off

Thanks for the help, it's graded so I was going for accuracy. I don't think it can be simplified any further can it?

Are you positive? I wanted to be a programmer all throughout high school and took all these math and computer courses to facilitate that goal, but my course completely changed when I got to college and I regret stacking up on all those classes.

I'm a programmer and I love math but I never had to do anything like that to get a programming job Learn java (and ruby) and design patterns. Learn how to build web pages that talk to a database, querying it and presenting the results, allowing the user to modify data in the database and add new rows. (CRUD) Make a site like that and put it in your resume. You'll get a job

no it can't be simplified any further since they all end with different letters unless there are two ie: 2gh +2gh = 4gh (both have to have the same variables) get it? i can't explain correctly online but yea..

Dude, does the original problem have any addition or subtraction symbols within the parentheses? If there are none, the answer is just 25(g^26)(h^20) fucking stoners (just kidding )
