Ok, so i have a generally clear idea on what then distributive property is. I understand that if a number is outside of a pair of brackets then you multiply that number by all the entities in the brackets although I have no idea how to solve this question. Expand, using the distributive property. Simplify. (5 - 4 times the square root of 3)(-2 + the square root of 3)
(I am only grade 10, so please try to avoid using any complicated (higher grade) math short cuts without clearly describing them) The answer is -22 + 13 square root of 3.
I would greatly appreciate any answer displaying the steps on how to solve this, and what you did each step.
