What I would do is change the problem up. Instead of b-9b I would make it -(9b-b). It is still the same problem; you will multiply the number inside the parenthesis be -1. So start with 9b-b. That would equal 8b. So it would change from -(9b-b) to -(8b) so you multiply 8b by negative 1 (-1) to get the answer -8b. -8b is your answer. So b - 9b = -8b
