Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1ok, when there is a number, or a term, anything outside of parenthesis, you MUST multiply the outside term with both of the terms within the parenthesis, if there is a fraction, like there is in ur question then you put the terms within the parenthesis, over 1 which would make it easier from you, there you multiply and your good to go, make sense?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0distribute the 2/5 to all of the terms inside the parenthesis. This gives 2/5*10x+2/5*15 then you want to simplify. \[\frac{ 2 }{ 5 }\times10x=\frac{ 2\times10x }{ 5 }=\frac{ 20x }{ 5 }=4x\] and \[\frac{ 2 }{ 5 }\times15=\frac{ 2\times15 }{ 5 }=\frac{ 30 }{ 5 }=6\] and so your two terms remaining are 4x=6
