Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0if you ever have a problem like that, # (#+#), use the distributive prop

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0to 'use the distributive property' is the same as 'multiply it out, or expand the brackets' so #1(#2 + #3) = (#1 times #2) plus (#1 times #3)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so like.. v+1=1v then x4? or am i totally wrong?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0wrong, but you seem to be getting closer :) v+1 is different to 1v because 1v is one multiplied by v just like v+4 is different to 4v because instead of having 4 + v (or 4 + 1v) its 4 multiplied by v does that make sense?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0kindaaa. but i dont get how they get 4x4

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0its because of the minus sign out the left side of the 4 4 (v+1) ^ the one above this: ^ that minus sign makes it negative 4 multiplied by each thing in the bracket, so you have to change the sign every time

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you could get 4x+4 but if you got 4x+8 then you would have had 4(x+2)
