Math 012

posted by .

I need help with this one too, same thing. Rewrite without parerntheses, then simplify if possible.

-4(4+2p+5)+16

    You do it, I will stay around for awhile and check you.

    -16-8p-20 +16

    take -4 times 4 which equals -16
    take -4 times 2p which equals 8p
    take 5 times -4 which equals -20
    then add 16 to the end.

    simplify by adding -16, -20 and 16.
    you get -8p - 20 (the -16 and +16 cancel each other out)

    -16-8p-20+16
    -16-8p-4
    -12-8p
