    Use the distributive property to simplify the expression below: -5x + 20 Divided by -5

    same like the one above -5 divided by -5 is 1 or x... -5 divided by 20 is -4 so x-4 should be the answer

    2x times 2x is 4x and 2y minus y is -3y and then 3z plus 2z is 5z

    Use the distributive property to simplify the expression below: t − 5(3 + t) A) −4t + 15 B) −5t − 2 C) −5t − 15 D) −4t − 15
