    10(q-20) If you distribute the 10, will you get the original?

    @Worior9131 for your original problem, did you check the distribution to make sure it worked?

    the other person was solving an equation. Your problem isn't an equation. It's asking you to factor/reverse distribute

    it is asking for the equivalent not what is = to 20

    equivalent means equal, so it has to equal 10q + 20 when you distribute

    you guys kill me stressing out about the options. LEARN THE MATH, and then you'll be able to see the correct option, which isn't B

    10q - 200 is not the original expression, so these are not equivalent

    it is asking for what i the closest to the original expression and B is the closest because it is basically the expression but flipped around

    equivalent does not mean closest. equivalent means equal

    @ryanwhite499 exactly! B = 10q-200, so that can't be the answer

    I know I'm not always right. I never claimed to be, but I don't launch an irrational defense when I'm wrong, I try to learn from it.
