    Example : 3(x + 2).....this is the same as saying 3 * x + 3 * 2 = 3x + 6 your basically multiplying the number on the outside of the parenthesis, with everything on the inside

    now that you have gotten rid of the parenthesis... 4y - 16 = 8......try adding 16 to both sides

    4y = 24 --- now we have to divide both sides by 4
