Confused

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+1.5-1.2+0.2


Help me please and thank you.

  • Confused -

    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
