How do you properly distribute?

posted by on .

Can someone please show me (STEP BY STEP!!!!!!!!!) how to properly distribute the following:

2 + 1/7 [x - (x+6 / 7) - 2]

This is what I have:

= 2 + 1/7 ( x -x-6/7 -2)
= 2 + (x - x - 6 - 2 / 49)
= (98 + x - x - 6 - 2) / 49
= 90/49

But the answer is:

6x + 78 / 49

    I believe you meant to type:

    2 + 1/7 [x - (x+6)/7 - 2]
    = 2 + 1/7[(7x - x - 6 - 14)/7]
    = 2 + 1/7[(6x - 20)/7]
    = 2 + [(6x - 20)/49]
    = 98/49 + (6x - 20)/49
    = (98 + 6x - 20)/49
    = (6x + 78)/49

    watch how you place your brackets, it is extremely important

    = 2 + 1/7[(7x - x - 6 - 14)/7]

    Can you explain how you distributed this part thoroughly?
