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.
what is another way of writing 4(x-3)?
I don't know?
do you know the properties mentioned in the responses above?
It could be in distributive?
what does the distributive property allow us to do?
multiply 1 or more terms inside the ( )
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)
I pretty sure its B?
@pgpilot326 Could you tell me if my answer is correct?
prove it to me, otherwise you're just gonna guess until you hit upon the correct answer. you'll never learn that way.
show me why you think B is correct... the math will be your guide
I just got help from my online teacher thank you for the help :) its C :)
