How do you simplfy the expression on The following problem

8-5(1+3n)

The first thing to do is multiply the 5 by what is in the parenthesis.

Since it is a -5 out front, that gives -5*1 - 5*3n, which is -5-15n.

Putting the 8 out front gives 8 - 5 - 15n.

Since 8 -5 are both numbers, and we both know 8-5=3, the final expression is 3 - 15n.
