what is 3(x-4)

Answers
Hello :) Well to answer this you must realise that to get the answer, the number on the outside of the brackets must be multiplied by the numbers inside the brackets. so 3(x)X = 3x 3x-4=-12 The answer to this is 3x-12 These types of questions are very important for GCSE and tests, so please make sure you understand how to do them. If you are still unsure, I would be able to explain better in a diagram and check you understand properly - if you started a private tutoring session with me. Hope I have helped :)
