Question

Simplify the expression by combining like terms:

4n+4(2n+3)

2 Answer

  • First, you do the distributive property on:

    4(2n+3)

    You would get

    8n+12

    Then add the original part of the equation in (4n)

    4n+8n+12

    Combine like terms

    12n+12 is the answer
  • First, you have to distribute 4(2n+3)
    You then get 4n+8n+12
    Secondly, you have to add 4n and 8n because they are like terms, so you get 12n
    Lastly, the outcome is 12n+12 because 12n and 12 are not like terms.

    Answer: 12n+12
