    An equation is shown below: 4(x - 3) - 5(x + 1) = 3 Which statement shows a correct next step in solving the equation? The equation can become 4x - 3 - 5x + 1 = 3 by applying the associative property of multiplication. The equation can become 4x - 3 - 5x + 1 = 3 by applying the distributive property. The equation can become 4x - 12 - 5x - 5 = 3 by applying the distributive property. The equation can become 4x - 12 - 5x - 5 = 3 by applying the associative property of multiplication.

    the distributive property gives a way of dealing with muliplication of a sum... a(b+c) = ab + ac the property works both ways so if we have something like 4(x-3) = 4x - 4*3 = 4x - 12 likewise, it works for factoring as well. suppose we have 5x + 5... we can rewrite this as 5x+5 = 5(x+1)

    prove it to me, otherwise you're just gonna guess until you hit upon the correct answer. you'll never learn that way.
