Confused
posted by Wynter .
We are doing distributive properties.
Ex: 0.5(4m+3)0.2(6m+1)
OKay so is that minus 0.2 or negative 0.2. I'm so confused. Is this how you would simplify it?
2m+1.51.2+0.2
Help me please and thank you.

0.5(4m+3)0.2(6m+1)
Clear the first set of parentheses by multiplying 4m+3 by 0.5. Clear the second set by multiplying 6m+1 by 0.2.
2m + 1.5 1.2m 0.2
