Can anyone check this answer out for me...

2(5-6y)

= 2 x 5 , 2 x -6

= 10 - 12y

or should the 12y appear before the 10 ???

am not sure of the rule... thanks

    10-12y is correct.
    It may also be written as -12y+10. There is no RULE that I know of that says the equation MUST be written one way or the other; however, most people prefer to write the variable (y term) first with the number following. Having said that, most people don't like to start an equation with a negative term. In my opinion, take your pick.
