Answer:

#-15x+35#

Explanation:

We can use the distributive property. Here, we simply multiply the outside term by every term inside. We now have

#-5(3x)-5(-7)#

Recall that the product of different signs is a negative, and the product of like signs is a positive. We now have

#-15x+35#

Hope this helps!
