Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The part that needs to be distributed is 4(2y^2). You multiply 4 by both 2 and y^2, so we have 4*2  4*y^2 or 8+4y^2. Now we can combine like terms, starting with the y^2 terms. We have y^2+4y^2 or 5y^2. Now the y terms: 3y+7y which is 10y. Then the numbers, 8 and 1 or 9. So the final answer is 5y^2+10y9.
