You need to get rid of the brackets first and then simplify it from there. Hope i helped

(x - 6) (x + 4) = x2 - 2x - 24

x(x-1)(x-1)FOIL SIMPLIFY TIMES EVERYTHING IN THE BRACKETS BY X i will let you work it out

You simplify the brackets first and then you will have linear equations without brackets!

Brackets are basically the same as parentheses. If they are inside of parentheses, then you simplify that term before anything else. If they are outside of parentheses, then you simplify the terms in the parentheses first and then the term within the brackets.

If you're asked to simplify an expression, you need to expand all brackets if there are any, and collect all like terms. If the question is a fraction you have to give the answer in its simplest form

7 + 3(n-2)

The space bar

The answer will depend on where the brackets are. In general the solution would be to expand all the brackets, combine like terms and then factorise.

expanding bracket is basically multiplying and is used in algebra for example: 2(6x+7x) You multiply everything outstide the bracket with everything inside the bracket for example: 2 x 6x=12x 2 x 7x= 14x so now you have expanded the brackets it looks like: 12x + 14x now simplify to make 26x . And that is how to expand brackets

put the bracket before the answer and multiply it by the nth term

Same as parentheses. Brackets are used simply as a different type of parentheses, to make it easier to match the left and the right side.

You multiply out brackets, remove common factors from fractions, combine like terms.

a(a + 2) = a2 + 2a

x[x+1] squared Simplified is, to my knowledge, x squared plus ( x + 1) squared

simplify the tax code by reducing the number of tax brackets

Multiply out the brackets and collect the like terms which simplifies to 5w-7v

You expand the parenthesis out first. Then simplify the rest.

By multiplying out the brackets it then is -10+24t-48 = 24t-58 when simplified

Not quite sure what you want to expand. One thing you can do is multiply both sides of the equation by the same (non-zero) number.

whats (x-6)(x+1) simplified

-x-6-(-11x) + (-1) Remove the brackets: -x-6+11x-1 Collect and simplify like terms: 10x-7 A - - is equal to a +

BEDMAS = brackets, exponents, division, multiplication, adding, subtracting or FOIL = first, outside, inside, last THIS ANSWER DOESNT TELL YOU S*IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

3(x+4) is the same as 3x+12 when the brackets are expanded out

The different types of brackets are: * round brackets, open brackets or parentheses: ( ) * square brackets, closed brackets or box brackets: [ ] * curly brackets, squiggly brackets, swirly brackets, braces, or chicken lips: { } * angle brackets, diamond brackets, cone brackets or chevrons: < > or ⟨ ⟩
