Help needed.

Chopsticks
well just distribute the number outside the paratheses to the stuff inside it.
1.3u + 3v
2.8+20s+3=22+20s
add like terms
you try it from here 
Chopsticks
oh sorry its
8+20s+3=11+20s
silly me 
Bella
like chopsticks said..multiply what's outside of the parenthesis with everything insidefor example
3. 1j + 2j + 12k
[ 1 j is just j ] add like terms
3j + 12k
4. 15ab + 45c
by the way, you're suppose to learn this stuff way before 9th grade..how are you learning it rite now?
