none I think it is either -2(-3m+5) or 2(3m-5)

For this, you use the distributive property. Which is \[\large \sf a(b+c)=ab+ac\]

okay

0 is a option

Uhh, one of those is the answer...

^ yeah that's what I mean, but I see a sign error in it unless the question was typed wrong. either the answer choice has a sign error or the question has a sign error.

  • anonymous
it was copy and pasted
UsukiDoll
  • UsukiDoll
now I see it... it was rearranged.

  • anonymous
i guess

  • anonymous
i dont understand it
UsukiDoll
  • UsukiDoll
use the distributive property on -2( 5-3m)
UsukiDoll
  • UsukiDoll
and then rearrange it. that was the problem that I'd overlooked

-4?
UsukiDoll
  • UsukiDoll
what is -2 x 5 what is -2 x (-3m)
anonymous
  • anonymous
-10 and 6x
UsukiDoll
  • UsukiDoll
close ... (I mean it's right, but the variable we have is m so we need to use that -10+6m and then rearrange it to look like 6m-10
anonymous
  • anonymous
okay
UsukiDoll
  • UsukiDoll
so for -10+6m you just have to write 6m first and then -10 so it's 6m-10
anonymous
  • anonymous
its not a option tho its what we are looking for
UsukiDoll
  • UsukiDoll
the question is asking Which of the following expressions is equivalent to 6m - 10? we have reached -10+6m which is the same thing but rearranged differently, so we have to rewrite it to see that -10+6m is the same as 6m-10

i believe it is the 1st one, no?
UsukiDoll
  • UsukiDoll
^ it had the + sign.
anonymous
  • anonymous
okay?
UsukiDoll
  • UsukiDoll
so we can't consider that because it was asking for something similar with 6m-10 so we need the minus sign. the first one seemed to be the option but it had a + so the sign was wrng.
UsukiDoll
  • UsukiDoll
*wrong
muscrat123
  • muscrat123
yea i caught that 2 @UsukiDoll but the #s r right 4 the first one, so it has 2 b the 1st 1
UsukiDoll
  • UsukiDoll
it was wrong due to the sign ok... for the second one we have reached the 6m-10 but it was written as -10+6m. Just rearrange it. It's the same thing!
anonymous
  • anonymous
so b?
UsukiDoll
  • UsukiDoll
yes...
anonymous
  • anonymous
thank you

i know - commutative property-got a # wrong - geeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeesh @UsukiDoll
