##### 2 Answers

#### Explanation:

We first start out by using the distributive property; that's

Now to combining like terms and a little multiplying:

Now we proceed to solving this 2-step equation:

Here, we encounter a problem: to finish, we need to divide by

It certainly isn't pretty, but it works. Finally, finally, we divide by

Hey, it's a weird answer, but the math never lies. Our result is

First collect like terms inside the brackets;

#4.7(2f-0.5)=-6(-6.7f)

Then, you would want to multiply into the brackets;

Collect like terms on either side of the equals sign;

Divide both sides by 30.8;

Finally, compute the result;

Hope that helps :)
