    for example 5*(2+3) you multiply every term inside the bars : 5*2 + 5*3

    okay, you have 5(x+4)+6(x+3) all you have to do is just multiply the 5 by the numbers inside the brackets like this: 5(x)+ 5(4)= 5x+20 and same thing for 6 you multiply it by everything inside the brackets 6(x) +6(3)=6x+18 now you add the numbers you got 5x+20+6x+18 11x+ 38

    3(-2x+y-2) 3(-2x)+3(y)+3(-2) -6x+3y-6 ^ that's the true answer :)
