Can anyone check this answer out for me...
2(56y)
= 2 x 5 , 2 x 6
= 10  12y
or should the 12y appear before the 10 ???
am not sure of the rule... thanks

1012y is correct.
It may also be written as 12y+10. There is no RULE that I know of that says the equation MUST be written one way or the other; however, most people prefer to write the variable (y term) first with the number following. Having said that, most people don't like to start an equation with a negative term. In my opinion, take your pick.
