The given expression is
In order to simplify the expression, first of all group the like terms
Now, combine the like terms to simplify it further
The GCF is 2. So factor out 2 to make it more simplified.
Thus, the simplified expression is
8-3 = 5
7-2 = 5
so the answer would be A
For this case we have the following expression:
We apply distributive property considering that:
Rewriting the expression we have:
We add similar terms taking into account that:
Equal signs are added and the same sign is placed.
Different signs are subtracted and the major sign is placed.
