Ok we are doing distributive property in math and I'm so confused on some of the problems. the problems are:
Thank you so much for your help.
Multiply each term in parentheses by the coefficient in front of it, and then combine constants and "x" and "y" terms separately
9 + x - 4 = x + 5
(You don't even have to do a distributive multiplication on that one)
3y -2(x-2y) = 3y - 2x + 4y = 7y - 2x
You try the others.
Your second expression needs parentheses to show us what the mumerator is.
