Answer:

The result is #60m+60#.

Explanation:

Use the distributive property, which looks like this:

#color(red)a(color(blue)x+color(green)y)=color(red)a*color(blue)x+color(red)a*color(green)y#

Now, use this in our problem (I'll color-code each term to it's easier to see):

#color(white)=6(10m+10)#

#=color(red)6(color(blue)(10m)+color(green)10)#

#=color(red)6*color(blue)(10m)+color(red)6*color(green)10#

#=color(red)6*color(blue)(10m)+color(brown)60#

#=color(purple)(60m)+color(brown)60#

That's the answer. Hope this helped!
