Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Using Distributive property you can do it.. Multiplication by minus sign here means multiplication by 1./.. so according to distributive property a*(x+y)=a*x+a*y also 1*1 = 1 1 * 1 = 1 1*1 = 1 ie ve multiplied by ve = +ve +ve multiplied by ve = ve ve multiplied by +ve = ve +ve multiplied by +ve = +ve hope now you can do it now by yourself

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok... 2*(5+3) this means we have to multiply the term outside the bracket (here 2) with terms inside the bracket (5+3) what this means is that we have to multiply 5 by 2 and 3 by 2 and have to add the result that is 2*(5+3) = 2*5 +2*3 = 10 + 6 = 16 you got this
