Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4Looking at the equation given, we have to use the distributive property. What can we distribute here?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4Dont forget, its ( 40  8c) Since that cannot be simplified further, that will cluded to be our answer.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4Well its quite easy actually. Your original question was: z ( c+ 5 )  8 (5 + c) You see how the expressions in the paranthesis are the same? They are both ( c + 5) right? Therefore, it creates one portion of this factorial polynomial. ( c + 5) Now you see the constants outside the paranthesis? Lets put those "together" to get z  8 Correct? This creates another portion of the factorial polynomial. (z  8) Put these both together and you get the answer to be: (z  8 ) ( c+ 5)
