    It would be D because you have 3n (any # with a variable next to it means mutilply them) and then you have -8 which would decrease 3n

    C and D both use multiplication. Now it says 3 times a number decreased by 8. It's between those two answers. C states n-8 times 3, because you always work the parenthesis first. Can you tell me what D states?
