## Hollywoodz 3 years ago Evaluate. Please show all of your work. -y – (-2y – 4), for y = -3

1. Jacobspa

plug y=-3 IN PARENTHESIS in

2. Jacobspa

make sure its inparenthesis

3. Hollywoodz

(-3)-(-2y - 4)

4. Jacobspa

See thats why in parenthesis the first -3 has another negative outside of it. And the second y should be replaced too

5. Hollywoodz

to separate the subtraction and the negative

6. Jacobspa

yes so plug it in and show me what you got

7. Hollywoodz

(-3)-(-2(-3)-4)

8. Jacobspa

There is still the extra negative missing outside the first -3

9. Jacobspa

do you see why?

18. Jacobspa

well from where you were with me you just simply everything

19. Jacobspa

which would end up as 3+24

I think... maybe this is how it works: -y - (-2y-4) distribute first the - sign, -y +2y +4 then, when y=-3 -(-3) +2(-3) +4 =3 - 6 +4 which is = to 1?
