## Rebecca* 3 years ago 12 + 3(2y – 3), I got 15.. is that right?

1. surdawi

12 + 3(2y – 3) what do you want? is this question complete?

2. gaara438125

I'm guessing she's solving for Y and setting it equal to 0 if so, then no it's not 15

3. Rebecca*

I just need to solve the whole problem.

4. surdawi

12 + 3(2y – 3), is it set to equal something like 12 + 3(2y – 3) =0?

5. gaara438125

well, are you simplifying it, or solving for y?

6. Rebecca*

Simplifying it:)

7. surdawi

distribute the 3 in 3(2y – 3)

8. Rebecca*

but dont i multiply the 3 by the 2.. since the (3) is not (3y)

12 + 3(2y – 3) |dw:1352131924584:dw|

10. gaara438125

you can multiply 3 by 2y because it's multiplication, NOT addition or subtraction.
