just do this part first: simplify 3(d  3) and tell me what you get

remember the distributive property? a(b+c)=ab+ac use that on 3(d3) and tell me what you get.

Multiply D by 3 and multiply 3 by 3. So d*3= ? and 3*3=?

see how the 3 gets "distributed"?

you believe that 3d+9=6d no remember to only combine "like terms" I will tell you that 3d+9 cannot be simplified As to your second question, we haven't even answered the first! Remember, one step at a time!

3d+9d=6d because they both have a "d" in them but 3d+9 has no "d" next to the 9, so it cannot be simplified now let's remember our original problem: 3(d  3) + 5d we have established that 3(d3)=3d+9 so we now have 3d+9+5d can you simplify that?

yes, nice job. Please focus on the part you had trouble with 3(d3)=3d+9 and see how it follows the distributive property, which is a(b+c)=ab+ac
