Answer by tutorcecilia(2152)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!simplify: 5-3(4x-1) 5-12x+3 [Distribute the (-3)] 8-12x [Combine like-terms] . . Expand the brackets: (x+5)(2-x) [Use the FOIL method to multiply] 2x-x^2+10-5x [Combine like-terms] -x^2-3x+10 . (3x-y)^2 [Expand the expression] (3x-y)(3x-y) [Use the FOIL method to multiply] 9x^2-3xy-3xy+y^2 [Combine like-terms] 9x^2-6xy+y^2
