# How do you simplify -4(n-7)-4(-8n+6)?

Mar 12, 2017

$28 n + 4$

#### Explanation:

Distributing the first part of the expression, we get

$- 4 n + 28$

The expression simplifies to $- 4 n + 28 - 4 \left(- 8 n + 6\right)$, and by distributing the $- 4$ into the final parenthesis, we get $+ 32 n - 24$.
Thus, $- 4 n + 28 + 32 n - 24 = 28 n + 4$.
