first off the question I'm stuck on is..(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

2(3.2) + 2(6.4)=

Factor by using the distributive law of real numbers in reverse.

For the life of my this is just not clicking. It's either too late or I'm incapable. ugh!

I went back and read the part on reverse distributive properties, it says, " The reverse of the distributive property is called factoring. The following are some examples."

4(3) + 4(2)= 4(3+2) - the real number factor, 4 is called the common factor of the addends.

I'm thinking I probably need to drag out my book from my last math class and look up factoring. This should be on the homework help page..but they didn't have a section for lowly pre algebra
