Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0She was right to use the distributive property, however, she distribute the 3 wrong. She was right to use the commutative property...although because of the mistake when using the distributive property, the numbers are wrong. She was correct in combining like terms for step 3,(except the numbers are wrong) but for step 4, she did not combine them correctly.
