# Math Help - Formula Question.

1. ## Formula Question.

I am supposed to be simplifying these questions. x.x Sadly enough I don't know where to start, I was hoping someone could point me in the right direction?

2/3 (12t - 18) + 2t - 30

40 ( 3/8 * Y - 1/4) + 40 (4/5)

I know this is duplicated. D: Sorry, but I can't delete it.

Use the property:

a(b+c) = ab + ac
$
in other words \frac{2}{3} (12t-18) = \frac{2}{3}\cdot 12t - \frac{2}{3}\cdot18$

once you've done combine the terms with those outside the brackets
