Simplify write equivalent expressions. 42+(3b+6)
2 Answer

1. User Answers c5h11no2
The first thing you want to do in this equation is get rid of the parenthesis. Because 42 is added to (3b+6) you cannot distribute the 2. However, there is an invisible 1 next to the parenthesis, so you can use that. Additionally, I like to change subtraction to addition of a negative number. It makes things a little less confusing.
4+ 2 + 3b + 6
Now just combine the like terms.
4 + 2 = 2
6+ 2 = 8
So the simplified version of your problem is: 3b + 8

4 2+ (3b+6)
= 2+ 3b+ 6
= 3b + (2+6)
= 3b+ 8
Hope this helps~
