Algebra Tiles Math 10 H 2017

(2x + 3) (x – x)


The top tiles represent 2x + 3, while the tiles on the left represent x – x.

All the tiles between them, is the answer to the equation that was made.

Since there are two -x^2 and two x^2 that would make two zero pairs, which would make that part zero.

And then there are three x’s and three -x’s , which would make three more zero pairs, and again, make that part zero, so the overall answer of the equation would be zero because (x – x) was zero, and that gets multiplied, which would always make the answer zero.
