# For 5x+20 and the multiplicative inverse of 5, how do you write the product and then write the expression in standard form?

Dec 17, 2016

$x + 4$

#### Explanation:

Product is the answer to a multiplication.

The multiplicative inverse is the same as the reciprocal.

$\left(5 x + 20\right) \times \frac{1}{5} = \frac{5 x + 20}{5}$

$= x + 4$
