1. 12 + 3(2y – 3)

12 + 6y - 9

3 + 6y

I did the first one. Now you can do the second one.

10. For the first question, we first use the distributive property. It states that we multiply everything within parentheses by the term outside parentheses:4(3x+2)-2 = 4(3x)+4(2)-2 = 12x+8-2Combine like terms:12x+(8-2) = 12x+6For the second question, we first find the GCF. To do this, find the prime factorization of 20 and 16:20 = 4*54 = 2*220 = 2*2*516 = 4*44 = 2*216 = 2*2*2*2For the GCF, we take the common factors; these are 2*2 = 4. This makes 4 the GCF.Factoring 4 out of 20b, we have 5b; factoring 4 out of -16 gives us -4. This gives us 4(5b-4).
