How do you multiply -5(3x - 7)?

Jul 29, 2018

$- 15 x + 35$

Explanation:

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

$- 5 \left(3 x\right) - 5 \left(- 7\right)$

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

$- 15 x + 35$

Hope this helps!
