**lyne**, Friday, January 23, 2009 at 9:02pmyou have to bring the -4 into each number that is in the parenthesis by multiplication.

so you do -4 x 1, -4 x 2m, and -4 x n

you should get -4 + 8m - 4n

then add on the 4 at the end so you get

-4 + 8m -4n + 4

it simplifies to 8m - 4n since the positive and negative fours cancel

post back if u dont understand
