Q:

# evaluate the expression 2ab 3+ 6a 3 - 4ab2 when a=2 and b=4.a.176b.180c.215d.216

Accepted Solution

A:
The first step for solving this expression is to insert what a and b stand for into the expression. This will change the expression to the following:
2(2)(4)³ + 6(2)³ - 4(2)(4)²
Now we can start solving this by factoring the expression
2(2 × 4³ + 3 × 2³ - 4 × 4²)
Write 4³ in exponential form with a base of 2.
2(2 × $$2^{6}$$ + 3 × 2³ - 4 × 4²)
Calculate the product of -4 × 4².
2(2 × $$2^{6}$$ + 3 × 2³ -4³)
Now write 4³ in exponential form with a base of 2.
2(2 × $$2^{6}$$ + 3 × 2³ -$$2^{6}$$)
Collect the like terms with a base of 2.
2($$2^{6}$$ + 3 × 2³)
Evaluate the power of 2³.
2($$2^{6}$$ + 3 × 8)
Evaluate the power of $$2^{6}$$.
2(64 + 3 × 8)
Multiply the numbers.
2(64 + 24)
Add the numbers in the parenthesis.
2 × 88
Multiply the numbers together to find your final answer.
176
This means that the correct answer to your question is option A.
