           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
Hi Ronda;
Distribute the -4 within its parentheses.
Distribute the +5 within its parentheses.
Combine like terms...
