Q. Multiply the expression -5(3*x* + 6)(3*x* - 6).

9*x*^{2} – 36

9*x*^{2} + 36

45*x*^{2} – 180

45*x*^{2} + 60*x* – 180

45*x*^{2} + 60*x* + 180

Q. Simplify the expression -3*x*^{2} + 2*xy* - (-*y*) – 6*y*^{2} + 10*xy* + (-2*x*) – 9*x*^{2} + *y*^{2} + 7*x* - 6*y*.

-12*x*^{2} + 12*xy* - 5*y*^{2} + 5*x* - 5*y*

12*x*^{2} - 12*xy* + 5*y*^{2} - 5*x* + 5*y*

-12*x*^{2} + 12*xy* - 5*y*^{2} + 5*x* - 7*y*

-12*x*^{2} + 12*xy* - 7*y*^{2} + 9*x* - 7*y*

-12*x*^{2} - 12*xy* - 7*y*^{2} - 9*x* - 7*y*

6*y*^{2} + 3*y* + 2

Cannot be simplified.

Q. Multiply the expression (4*z* + 2)(z^{2} - 7*z* + 1).

4*z*^{3} - 28*z*^{2} + 4*z*

4*z*^{3} + 28*z*^{2} + 18*z* - 2

4*z*^{3} - 30*z*^{2} - 18*z* + 2

4*z*^{3} - 26*z*^{2} - 10*z* + 2

4*z*^{3} - 30*z*^{2} - 10*z* + 2
