I dont know what you mean by ANSWER to 3(x+y)? Answer can be given to a Question.. This is not a question.. Do you mean value of 3(x+y)? Then it will be expansion of it as previously posted 3x+3y & Numerical value will certainly depend on numerical value of x & y... If you want solution then you should have given an equation like 3(x+y)=k [k being a known constant] So then value of (x,y) that satisfies it would have been an answer. If that was the case then also it is 1 equation in 2 variables & will have infinite answers. I hope you got the satisfactory answer. Regards.

it is very simple 3x+3y

You don't have anything representing the x & the y. But it is 3x + 3y. I loved algebra when I took it in school. Now my son is learning a little and it brings back my memories of it.

3x+3y simple. if you are given values for x and y just substitute them in.

u solve it as-3(x+y)=3x+3y.n wotevr da values of x n y r add it up

3(x+y) is a random polynomial expression. Your question is not clear. If there is an equation, a possible solution could be deduced. since you have just stated the polynomial, it can have infinite values!!!

the answers 3x+3y, just did it last year for Algebra.

I believe that it's 3x+3y aswell (that's if they have not assigned values to x and y).

well its simply 3x+3y thats it....n if deres another equation given for x n y den u jus slove both the equations n get the values for x n y!!!!

soory i don't know that much algebrs but as far as my math is concernec and what i have learned it should be 3x+3y+3xy2

I've forgotten all the algebra I was so good at in school, but then I graduated over 46 years ago. You tend to forget things that you don't use over time.

3(x+y) = 3x+3y (expand); 3(x+y) = 3x(1+(y/x)) (x taken out, x 0); 3(x+y) = 3y((x/y)+1) (y taken out, y 0)

you simply multiply x by 3 and then y by 3 which will equal 3x 3y, unless you know what the values are for x and y you just leave it like that. in this case x is a variable and y is a variable, they could represent any number you want them to.

To get the answer, first you will need to know what X and Y are. To work the equation. ANotehr way to look at this equation is "3 Times X+Y " For example: If X is 4 and Y is 2. The equation is solved by: 4+2=6 X 3 + 18
