Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1then by all means: 4(5+3) = 32 right? becasue it is simply 4(8)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1to distribute means to take that 4 and distribute it thru to the 5 and 3 like this: 4(5) + 4(3) = 32 20 + 12 = 32 32 = 32 ...did you see that?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.14(x+3) would distribute like this: 4(x) + 4(3) 4x + 21 right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1not quite 18; the x represent something that we know nothing about yet; suppose it represent oranges would 10 oranges and 8 cents = 18?? or would it simply be: 10 oranges and 18 cents?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.110x is just 10x; theres nothing more to do with it. 10x + 8 is as far as we can go with it

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.110x+8 +3x 7 +x is what we have come to in your question then; now we add up all the x's to get what? 10x +3x +x = how many x's?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.13x means: x+x+x x mean: x 10x means: x+x+x+x+x+x+x+x+x+x when we add up all these x's how many are there? (x) + (x+x+x) + (x+x+x+x+x+x+x+x+x+x) ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1thats correct :) 14x is the combined number of x's :)
