# How do you simplify -6(5r-6)+4(6+4r)?

May 24, 2017

The answer is $- 14 r + 60$.

See the explanation for the process.

#### Explanation:

Simplify:

$- 6 \left(5 r - 6\right) + 4 \left(6 + 4 r\right)$

First expand each term using the distributive property: $a \left(b + c\right) = a b + a c$.

$- 30 r + 36 + 24 + 16 r$

Gather like terms.

$\left(- 30 r + 16 r\right) + \left(36 + 24\right)$

Simplify.

$- 14 r + 60$
