# How do you multiply 6h+5(h-5)?

Jun 30, 2018

$11 h - 25$

#### Explanation:

$6 h + 5 \left(h - 5\right)$

First, use the distributive property (shown below) to simplify $5 \left(h - 5\right)$:

Following this image, we know that:
$\textcolor{b l u e}{5 \left(h - 5\right) = \left(5 \cdot h\right) + \left(5 \cdot - 5\right) = 5 h - 25}$

Put it back into the expression:
$6 h + 5 h - 25$

Add $\textcolor{b l u e}{6 h}$ and $\textcolor{b l u e}{5 h}$:
$11 h - 25$

Hope this helps!
