Hee, Hee, Hee... oops!

You are absolutely right Daureen! Way to check up on that Arvin!

The only thing is, I meant to write

x(7x^3+x^2+5)

So, if you subtract x(2x^2) where x=3 from Daureen's answer, you'll finally "be in the know."

By the way, do you remember that T.V. commercial with the boy who kept on changing all the chocolate chips in cookies to rainbow colored chips? Everytime he did, he laughed "hee, hee, hee, oops!"

enjfmumm.. ill try it again!

x(7x^3+x^2+5)
3(7(3)(3)(3)+ (3)(3)+ 5)
3(7(27)+(9)+ 5)
3(189 + 9+ 5)
3(203)

= 609 candies in the jar??



or


x(2x^2)
3(2(3)(3))
3(2(9))
3(18)
=54

subtracted by
my other answer
=663


soo...

663 - 54

=609 candies in the jar...

You got it! Great work Daureen! A fantastic idea to try the problem both ways too, then you know you're right because it's a way of double-checking.

609 candies... wouldn't want to count that every day!
