Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1hint: if I simplify the left side, I get: \[\Large 30 + 18 = 30 + 6y\] now I subtract at both sides 30, so I can write this: \[\Large 30 + 18  30 = 30 + 6y  30\] please simplify

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0This problem is an exercise on the distributive property. \(\Large a(b + c) = ab + ac\) Here is an example with numbers: \(\Large 3(4 + 7) = 3 \cdot 4 + 3 \cdot 7\) You take the number outside the parentheses, and you multiply it by both numbers inside the parentheses. You separate the two multiplications by the same operation that is inside the parentheses.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Now let's look at your problem: \(\Large 6(5 + 3)\) Let's apply the distributive property to it: \(\Large 6(5 + 3) = 6 \cdot 5 + 6 \cdot \_\_\) What goes in the blank?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yes! now, please I divide both sides by 6, so I get: \[\Large \frac{{18}}{6} = \frac{{6y}}{6}\] again, please simplify
