    Do you know how to remove brackets in this type of questions?

    Nw let's take a simple example. 2(3-2) Let's first remove the bracket to solve this. 2(3-2)=2*3-2*2. Removing the brackets means to multiply the terms inside the bracket by the one outside. See if that makes a little sense

    Say u need to multiply 2/3 by 5. First multiply 2 by 5. U vl get 10. Nw divide 10/3. See if u get a whole number if u do divide. If so write t. If nt leave the fraction as it is. See if that makes a little sense.
