Posted by on .

(-32)-s (-9) I am not good at algebra. I am supposed to use the distributive property, but not sure where to begin.

  • math - ,

    I don't either, as written

    distributive problems usually involve a product of a number and a sum, or the product of two sums

    6(3+7) = 6*3 + 6*7 = 60
    4(s-3) = 4s - 4*3 = 4s-12

    what you have shown above is bogus.

  • math - ,

    It was supposed to be (-32-s)(-9). I copied it wrong, Sorry Steve!

  • math - ,

    In that case
    (-32)(-9) + (-s)(-9) = 288 + 9s

    or, you can distribute the -1 out:

    -(32+s)(-9) = -(-288-9s) = 288+9s

  • math - ,

    Thank u. Can you also help me at -19 (v-1)
