you want to group all numbers with x

distribute thru the paranthesis and then combine like terms

^^

ok seriously i suck at math that makes no sense to me i have no idea how to do that

lets figure out what distribute means then :)

would you agree that (5+3) = 8?

yes

then by all means:
4(5+3) = 32 right? becasue it is simply 4(8)

yes

ya

4(x+3) would distribute like this:
4(x) + 4(3)
4x + 21 right?

sure

well, 4(3) = 12, not 21..typoed it

can you distribute this for me then?
2(5x+4)

2 and the 5 is = 10
4 and 5 is= 20
so is it 30

a little more practice and you should have it down pat

oh so its 18 im gettng it

typoed again...

.....computer spazed oon me lol

oh ok

10x is just 10x; theres nothing more to do with it.
10x + 8 is as far as we can go with it

try to distribute this one for me:
-1(7-x)

ok slowly but surely getting it

-1+7x

still got some ironing out to do; but the concepts are there :)

try to rewrite it like this:
-1(7) + -1(-x)

-7 + x right?

yes

14

thats correct :) 14x is the combined number of x's :)

oh

14x +(8-7) =? what is 8-7?

then we have come to our answer and cant go any further:
14x + 1 is the answer :)

oh i see

practice at it; the hardest part really is getting the distributive stuff down pat.

uh huh i will
