well just distribute the number outside the paratheses to the stuff inside it.

1.3u + 3v

2.8+20s+3=22+20s

add like terms

you try it from here

like chopsticks said..multiply what's outside of the parenthesis with everything insidefor example

3. 1j + 2j + 12k

[ 1 j is just j ] add like terms

3j + 12k

4. 15ab + 45c

by the way, you're suppose to learn this stuff way before 9th grade..how are you learning it rite now?
