Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.15 take away 1 is just 4.... \[51=4 \\ \text{ so } 5(xy)1(xy)=4(xy) \\ \text{ now just use distributive property }\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1did you actually try to use distributive property 4 doesn't equal 1... 51 is 4 not 1 5(xy)1(xy)=4(xy) just apply the distributive law to 4(xy)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.14(x+y)=4x+4y 4(xy)=4x4y we had 4(xy) so distributing 4 to the terms inside that ( ) gives 4x4y not 4x+4y
