    [SOLVED] need some help simplifying :)

    ok I was wondering if anyone could tell me what these equations are simplified

    1) pq + 3qr - 2rq +6qp

    2) (12ab)/6b

    3) 6mn * (-2mn)

    I would really appreciate any help

    For #1, what's your common term. It's "q". So factor that out and see what you've got left, just like so: q(p+...)

    For #2, perhaps visually seeing the terms differently will help. You have: \frac{12}{6}*{b^2}{b}*{a^2}{1}

    Same process for 3.
