# How do you simplify (1+2v) times 5?

Aug 13, 2016

$5 + 10 v$

#### Explanation:

Usually written 5(1 + 2v)

each of the 2 terms inside the bracket must be multiplied by the 5.

$\textcolor{red}{5} \left(1 + 2 v\right) = \left(\textcolor{red}{5} \times 1\right) + \left(\textcolor{red}{5} \times 2 v\right)$

$\Rightarrow 5 \left(1 + 2 v\right) = 5 + 10 v$
