yea sorry

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

- anonymous

okay

- anonymous

0 is a option

- anonymous

Uhh, one of those is the answer...

- UsukiDoll

^ 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

now I see it... it was rearranged.

- anonymous

i guess

- anonymous

i dont understand it

- UsukiDoll

use the distributive property on
-2( 5-3m)

- UsukiDoll

and then rearrange it. that was the problem that I'd overlooked

- anonymous

-4?

- UsukiDoll

what is -2 x 5
what is -2 x (-3m)

- anonymous

-10 and 6x

- 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

okay

- UsukiDoll

so for -10+6m
you just have to write 6m first and then -10
so it's 6m-10

- anonymous

its not a option tho its what we are looking for

- 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

- muscrat123

i believe it is the 1st one, no?

- UsukiDoll

^ it had the + sign.

- anonymous

okay?

- 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

*wrong

- 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

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

so b?

- UsukiDoll

yes...

- anonymous

thank you

- muscrat123

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