Posted by Shivangi on Sunday, July 6, 2008 at 11:25pm.

the equation is : - (2x + 3)-(4 + x).
Using the distributive property, my friend got the answer -7 - 3x. I have been fiddling with this problem for 3 hours and don't understand how he got this answer. Can someone please thoroughly explain this to me?
