Which pair of expressions has the same value?
A (2)(-8) and 2 - 18
B (-2)(8) and 18 + (-2)
C 2(8) and 2 + 18
D (-2)(-8) and 2 + (-18)
I think the answer is A.
Thank you to whoever can help! <3

  1. 2 -8 = -6 and 2 - 18 = -16. So A is not right. Work out each problem and then when you think you've found the answer, let me know.

  3. It isn't B because (-2)(8) is -16 and 18 + (-2) is 16.
    It isn't C because 2(8) is 16 and 2 + 18 is 20.
    So the answer is D?

  4. Ah, I think I may have made a mistake. Let's start from A again.

    A = 2 -8 = -16 and 2 - 18 = -16.
    B = -2 8 = -16 and 18 + -2 = 16.
    C = 2 8 = 16 and 2 + 18 = 20.
    D = -2 -8 = 16 and 2 + -18 = -16.

    A is the correct answer. My bad.
