Multiply `2` by each term inside the parentheses.
Multiply `8` by each term inside the parentheses.
Remove the `-1` from `-1y` .
Combine all similar terms in the polynomial `2y+2x-y-y+x-13+16-8x` .
Reorder the polynomial `-5x+3` alphabetically from left to right, starting with the highest order term.
Simplify `2(y + x) + (-1y) + (-1y) + x + (-13) + 8(2-x).`
First distribute the 2 to (y + x) and 8 to (2 - x).
`2y + 2x + (-1y) + (-1y) + x + (-13) + 16 - 8x`
Now combine like terms.
`2y + (-1y) + (-1y) = 0y = 0`
`2x + x - 8x = -5x`
`-13 + 16 = 3`
Therefore this gives us `0y - 5x + 3` or `-5x + 3` .
The simplified solution is `-5x + 3` or `3 - 5x.`
`2(y+x) + -1y + -1y + x + (-13) + 8(2-x) `
now combine like terms
`3-5x` and that's your answer
