    Using 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

    ok..Let us start from the beginning... expand bracket means multiplying the terms outside the bracket with the terms inside.. that is for example 1.expand bracket a*(x+y) means multiply 'a' with the terms inside the bracket You understand that??

    ok... 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
