Are you trying to simplify?

if you have to simplify then this would be a great help

@DNTU4GETBOUTME Yes.

First you apply the distributive property. Do you know how to do that?

Yes; am I distributing the -4x?

Does that make sense?

I'm bad at explaining things. Moving on, next you should multiply x by x^2 to get x^3.

Multiply -5x by -3 to get 15x?

Correct! So now we have −5(2x3)+15x−4x

Next simplify −5(2x^3). You're doing really good :)

If you multiply -5 by 2x^3, you'll get -10x^3 right?

Yep! Now we have −10x^3+15x−4x. All we have to do now is add 15x and −4x.. which gives us?

11x.

Correct! So the answer is −10x^3+11x

Thank you very much for your help! Do you have time to help me with one more?

Sure!

4m - 3m(5m - 6)

Okay just like the first problem we're going to start by applying the distributive properties.

I'm sorry, I'm confused; where do we move them?

We're going to take negative 3 and add them there to get 4m−3m(5m)−3m(−6)

Next we're multipling m by m to get m^2. which simply changes our work to 4m−3(5m^2)−3m(−6)

Now we're going to simplify the last term −3m(−6)

that's 18m, right?

Correct! 4m−3(5m^2)+18m Now we simplify −3(5m^2)

-15m^2

Yep! We now have 4m−15m^2+18m

Now we add 4m and 18m together and get?

22m

But i'm a bit confused, aren't you supposed to add the 4m and -15m^2 together?

Correct! Great job! Our answer is −15m^2+22m

thank you again!

You're very welcome. Now you see how easy simplifying can be. I'm glad I could help
