Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0That's wrong. Because you only have a negative before the brackets but if it was like this : 9x(73x) The yeah you MUST distribute the 9. But your question is like this : 9x(73x) So you will only distribute the negative. => 9x7+3x ( and don't forget: negative * negative = positive ) And when you simplify it all you have to do is COMBINE LIKE TERMS!! => 12x7

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You have to combine like terms right ? 18r and 63r are like terms ^ Add them => 81r And 48 and 27 are like terms ^ Add them => 75 So, what will you get ? 81r75 Do you get it ? :D
