distribute the negative sign in front of (p+11) first -(p+11) = -p - 11 that gives us: -p-11+2p-2=31 then combine like terms

So would you take -11-2? or -11+-2?
Vocaloid
  • Vocaloid
either one is fine, it gives the same result -11-2 = ?

But that doesn't make sense to me because I plugged it back in and didn't get -31

-(p+11)+2p-2=31 -(44+11) + 2(44) - 2 = 31 -55+88-2 = 31 33-2 = 31
