Hi Faith, step 1: remove the parenthesis. so the expression would become 12y + 4x + 15y +2 step 2: combine the like terms. this means you can add 12y and 15y. so now you get: 17y + 4x + 2 regards, Fatima K. 9/13/2013 | Fatima K. Comment Comments Just noticed that in the first line you have " -2 " So in that case the whole expression would remain the same except the positive 2 would become a negative 2. so your answer would be 17y + 4x - 2 ( I am not sure which one is the question you need answer for, hence, I have provided for both) Hope it helps! 9/13/2013 | Fatima K. sorry typing error! its going to be 27y 9/13/2013 | Fatima K.
