Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0How did you get that? I'm sorry, but I'm unsure of how to do it.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok if we just look at yw+5w ... there is a w common in both terms. This means you can factor it out. (Essentially, you are dividing the inside of the parentheses by w, and bringing that w out): w(y+5) ... think if you had to multiply this out, you would get wy+ w5 (or yw+5w) which is what you had initially
