I'm not sure how to do this question.
Use the distributive property to rewrite the expression without parenthses: -(r-2-8p). How do I do this?

This can also be written as...
Instead of a minus sign as a coefficient, there is now a -1. It is the same thing...
(-1)(-2)=2, negative multiplied by a negative is positive.
(-1)(-8p)=8p, negative multiplied by a negative is positive.
