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

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(s3) = 4s  4*3 = 4s12
what you have shown above is bogus.

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

math  Steve, Monday, February 4, 2013 at 5:07pm
In that case
(32)(9) + (s)(9) = 288 + 9s
or, you can distribute the 1 out:
(32+s)(9) = (2889s) = 288+9s
