**Steve**, Monday, February 4, 2013 at 4:56pmI 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.

**Megan**, Monday, February 4, 2013 at 5:02pmIt was supposed to be (-32-s)(-9). I copied it wrong, Sorry Steve!

- math -
**Steve**, Monday, February 4, 2013 at 5:07pmIn that case

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

or, you can distribute the -1 out:

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