The incorrect work of a student to solve an equation 2(y + 8) = 4y is shown below:
Step 1: 2(y + 8) = 4y
Step 2: 2y + 10 = 4y
Step 3: 2y = 10
Step 4: y = 5
Which of the following explains how to correct Step 2 and shows the correct value of y?
A. The equation should be y + 8 = 4y after division by 2; y = 4
B. The equation should be y + 8 = 4y after division by 2; y = 6
C. 2 should be distributed as 2y + 16; y = 4
D. 2 should be distributed as 2y + 16; y = 8

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The key to this is the distributive property, which says that 2(x+y) = 2x+2y

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Just use the distributive property to distribute the 2 for (y+8)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The 2x+2y is just an example of how the distributive property works. It's completely unrelated to the problem.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I've already told you. I've explained it several ways. It's not a difficult question, all you need to do is use the distributive property and then get y alone.
