    5.6h -6.8+6.8=43.27+6.8 5.6h=50.07 now divide both sides by 5.6 \[\frac{ 5.6h }{ 5.6 }=\frac{ 50.07 }{ 5.6 }=8.94\] h=8.94 :)

    its just normal, you dont need to use distributive here , it is used only when there is something like this 5(x+3) = 5*x+5*3

    you need to multiply 1.4 with the stuff inside bracket that is, you have to distribute 1.4 over u and 3.7

    if yes then 13d-53=9d+19 subtract 9d both the sides 13d-9d-53=9d-9d+19 4d-53=19 now add 53 on both sides 4d-53+53=19+53 4d=72 divide both sides by 4 d=18 that is correct
