QuestionDaniel expanded the expression as shown. What errors did he make? Select three options.

[tex]-2(-8x-4y+3/4)=-10x-8y-1 \frac{1}{4}[/tex]

A. The first term should be positive.

B. The second term should be positive.

C. The last term should be -1 1/2, not -1 1/4.

D. He divided -8 by -2 instead of multiplying -8 by -2.

E. He did not simplify the expression completely.

Answer:Daniel’s errors are (a), (b) and (c)

Step-by-step explanation:To do this, we only need to solve the expression on the left.

So, we have:[tex]-2(-8x-4y+3/4)=[/tex]

Open bracket[tex]-2(-8x-4y+3/4)=-2 * -8x -2 * -4y – 2 * 3/4[/tex]

[tex]-2(-8x-4y+3/4)=16x + 8y – \frac{2 * 3}{4}[/tex]

[tex]-2(-8x-4y+3/4)=16x + 8y – \frac{6}{4}[/tex]

[tex]-2(-8x-4y+3/4)=16x + 8y – 1\frac{1}{2}[/tex]

From the expression, we can see that:So, Daniel’s errors are (a), (b) and (c)
