    Have you tried working this out on your own? Distribute the 9 to 4x + 8, then subtract the 6. Follow your order of operations.

    Close. Don't forget to subtract the 6 at the end.

    Sure. Follow your order of operations, PEMDAS (Parentheses, Exponent, Multiply/Divide, Add/Subtract). Starting with parantheses, we see that we cannot simplify (4x+8) any further. The next thing on the list that we can do is multiply. Whenever we multiply across an expression with two terms, we must distribute. AKA: 9(4x+8) = 36x+72 We multiply each term by that number (in this case 9). But we're not done yet. We still have that 6 that we must subtract. 36x + 72 - 6 = 36x + 66
