Use the Distributive property to rewrite each expression in it's equivalent form -7y(4-y)
hello students from all over the world ! please , someone be kind enough to help me on this math problem ( if u are in 7th grade or higher u can handle it !) :)

The arrows indicate that you multiply each one, that way you don't forget in the long run, especially once you get to multistep algebraic equation.

So first you multiply the -7y by the 4 and you get -28y, if you remember a negative times a positive is a negative (I like to think of it as bad things that happen to good people is a  bad thing ;) ) Now you take the -7y, because you have to multiply it by both numbers in the parenthesis, and multiply it to the -y, and since when you multiply two y's together it becomes squared it is 7y^2 (squared) and since both are negative, they cancel out and become a positive (bad things that happen to bad people is a good thing in a sense) So therefore your answer for the equivalence is 7y^2 + -28y

Hope that helped, my math teacher has a lot of tricks for remembering this stuff :)

Distributive property is just saying multiply something. So you get -7y times 4, that gives you -28y for the other part you are going to do the same. But in this time y is being multiplied by it self so that mean that it is going to be something with an exponent. The answer for the second part is 7y^2 it turned into a positive because a nagar ice times a negative turns into a positive.

Bonnie and some friends went to an amusement park. They bought rve of thesame lunches and 3 desserts and spent a total of $60.25 on the food. Eachdessert costs$5.25 less than one of the lunches.a. Detine a variable: Write an equation that can be used to find the cost oflunch.b. Solve the equation to find the cost of a lunch.en5.2

Let the variable be the cost of the lunch: x

so they bought 5 lunches: 5x
deserts are cheaper than lunches; they cost:
x-5.25
So together they paid:
5x+3*(x-5.25)=60.25

(we know how much they paid, so we can make an equation)

Let's remove the bracket:
5x+3*x-15.75=60.25

8x-15.75=60.25//we add 15.75 to both sides:
8x=76
and divide by 8:
x=9.5

So each lunch costs 9.5 dollars!
