# How do you simplify 5 (y - b ) + 3b - 6y + 4 (6 + b )?

May 13, 2018

$2 b - y + 24$

#### Explanation:

Open the brackets and then add or subtract the like variables.

$5 \left(y - b\right) + 3 b - 6 y + 4 \left(6 + b\right)$
$5 y - 5 b + 3 b - 6 y + 24 + 4 b$
$\left(5 y - 6 y\right) + \left(3 b + 4 b - 5 b\right) + 24$----->re-arranging the like variables
$- y + 2 b + 24$

re-arranging again:
$2 b - y + 24$
