Right, you multiply by each factor:

(p-4)5 = (5p) - (5*4) = 5p - 25

Bentonville, AR

The distributive property says that you need to expand or multiply each factor . In this case since you have a product between 2 expression (p-5) and 5 , you multiply 5 by each term within the paranthesis. So you have 5*p - 5*5 = 5p -25
