How do you simplify 6(9 - 6)?

1 Answer

Answer:

#18#

Explanation:

#6(9-6)#

You need to expand the brackets first. If you do not know how to do this it is pretty simple: you just multiply the number outside the bracket with both numbers within. Therefore...

#6 xx 9 = 54#

#6 xx (-6) = - 36#

So

#54 - 36 = 18#
