Here's another please, does this make sense? Question: 2(t + 6) - 3(4 - 3t) My Answer (Unsure): = (t + 12) - (12 - 3t) = t x 12 + t - 3t +12-12 + 12-3t = 12t + 3t^2 + 0 + 9t = 21t - 3t^2 That right? or miles off? Cheers

Cheers In future please create a new thread for a new problem. 2(t+6) - 3(4 - 3t) = (2t + 12) - (12 - 9t) = 2t + 12 - 12 + 9t = 2t + 9t = 11t = EDIT: Well you edited something Mr F, why is there an extra equal sign?

Cheers The distributive law states you must multiply those outside the brackets by those inside that being said; 2(t + 6) - 3(4 - 3t) =2*t+2*6-3*4-3*(-3t) =2t+12-12+9t =2t+9t =11t
