I need to evaluate the following expression. Can anyone tell me if I am right on this or on the right track? Thanks
6 (x+3) - 4 (x+2)
6x+18) – (4x+8)
6x + 18 - 4x -8
correct, but don't forget to place an "=" in front of each new line
also, you can go directly to the third line by the application of the distributive property
