The thread won't die because people like you still don't understand how to do math, and we are trying to help you understand Distributing and Factoring. We are not trying to be "right" but rather point you in the right direction so you can see for yourself.

Obviously, you dont understand the distributive property.

You only use it when what inside the parenthesis cant be combined.

You do parantheses FIRST.

If it was (2+x). THEN YOU COULD USE IT.

You clearly dont understand factoring either!

You use it when what is inside the parentheses cant be combined.

I dont think you know the difference of an integer and a nomial either.

If it was (3x + 3y) you could factor.

....you need to go back to school!!!
