It all begins with your first problem. Ask.
what does 5y(8+4) -8 mean
first off 8 + 4 = 12 so it is the same as
Not the answer you are looking for? Search for more explanations.
when the variables are next to numbers with no symbol between them it measn multiplication, so this is the same as
\[5\times y\times 12-8=5\times 12\times y-8=60y-8\]
ok so would the answer be 52y
60 y - 8 =?
60y and 8 are not like terms and their difference cannot be further simplified. So, the answer is 60y -8.
y is a variable and for all we know might be equal to, say 7. Then 60y - 8 = 60(7) -8 = 412. But, then y might be equal to 3 in which case 60y - 8 would be 60(3) - 8 = 180 - 8 = 172.
Algebra can be thought of as arithmetic with variables or as some would say, "the science of finding x."
