Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so, first, I should multiply12 and x, so I get 12x, and then I combine like terms, right? so, simplified it would be \[(x8)20x+16\]right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I can't? I thought it that when you multiply a number and an unknown, you get \[number(unknown)\]
