Which step was incorrect, and what should be the correct step that Dom should use? Step 3 was incorrect. Correct step: x + (5 − 1)y; using distributive property of addition Step 2 was incorrect. Correct step: x − (5y − y); using associative property of addition Step 2 was incorrect. Correct step: x + (5y + y); using associative property of addition Step 3 was incorrect. Correct step: x − (−5 − 1)y; using distributive property of addition
step 3 is incorrect. Correct step: x + (5 − 1)y; using distributive property of addition
how?
