Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Firstly, what you want to do is open the brackets up. so do that and show me what you get

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I don't really know what you are asking. That is exactly like it is.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Okay what I mean is, first you want to expand the brackets so these things "( )", do you know how to do that?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.14(3x5)(10+4x) First, multiply 4 by (3x  5) and multiply "", which is just 1, by (10 + 4x) So... 12x  20  10  4x All I did was multiply 4(3x  5) by 4 and I made everything in (10 + 4x) negative because it had a negative sign in front of it, which is understood to just be 1. Your next step is to add like terms.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I got that, but it looked wrong. It's just so short. Is it always that short?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I got it to around 24x  12 but that isn't an answer on the sheet (It is one of those horrible joke homework papers, where the answers correspond to a letter)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1(4x9)+8(2x+3)7x So (4x  9) + 8(2x + 3)  7x 4x  9 comes out of the brackets because there is nothing in front of it If it were 2(4x  9), we could do something with it, but in this case, we can't So now we have 4x  9 + 8(2x + 3)  7x Now, we CAN do something with our 8(2x + 3) (And it's called MULTIPLICATION) \[4x  9 + (8 \times 2x) + (8 \times 3)  7x\] We are basically multiplying 8 by everything inside of (2x + 3) So we now have... 4x  9 + 16x + 24  7x Now we just add like terms
