-4(5w+x)+5(x-3) how do I work this equation??

Ronda,

You would begin by clearing out your parenthesis. You would multiply both 5w & x by -4 and then you would multiply both x & 3w by 5 this would look like this:

(-4)(5w) + (-4)(x) + (5)(x) - (5)(3w).

After performing theses operations you would combine your like terms so that you would end up with a certain number x plus or minus a certain number w.

Please let me know what you come up with
