    Okay, writing the problem down is a good first step. Now what? Are we solving for b? You had better get all the 'b's on one side of the equation.

    "no" what? We're not solving for b? I guess we'll need a problem statement. What are we doing?

    we are doing distribute ,combine and solve

    This is why you need to produce the ENTIRE problem statement and SHOW some work of your own. MUCH confusion can be avoided. Solve for what?

    What's preventing your from doing that? Show the distributive property... 10(1+3b) = ?? Go!

    40 becuase 1+3=4*10=40

    Where did he b go? Please demonstrate the distributive property. Do NOT try to solve the whole problem. 10(1+3b) = ??

    10(1+3b) + 15b= -20 Resolve the bracket 10+30b + 15b= -20

    You still have not demonstrated the Distributive Property. a(b+c) = ab + ac That is what you do. Demonstrate: 10(1+3b) = ??

    10*3b = 30b

    lime. You're not listening. SHOW us how to apply the distributive property. Stop trying to jump to the end of the problem.

    it's like this 10(1+3b) = 10 x 1+ 10 x 3b = 10 + 30b now put it on to the equation 10+30b+15b = -20 From now onward you have to go in the normal method.

    You should find the time to practice ONLY the Distributive Property. It will help you constantly if you are not struggling with it.

    okai now see 10+30b+15b = -20 right? now u add up the b parts 10+45b = -20 right? now take that 10 to the other side so we cann add -20 and 10 45b= -20-10 45b= -30 so b = -30/45 = -2/3 got it ?

    yes. so if u want to simplify it more divide -2 by 3 and u will get a value like -0.666
