(3−8y)⋅(−2.5) distributive property to create an equivalent expression
, -7.5 + 20y, Distributive property means "to distribute a value to other values", , a(b+c) = ab + ac, In (3−8y)⋅(−2.5), we distribute -2.5 to both 3 and -8y, -2.5 * 3 = -7.5, -2.5 * -8y = 20y, adding them together gives us -7.5 + 20y, , , , Distribute 3 to - 2.5 and you will get - 7.5, Distribute - 8y to - 2.5 and you will get 20y., #Answerfortrees ,
