1. Hey there!

## $$\frac{2}{5}(4x-5)$$

Let’s add parenthesis to 2/5. We can leave (4x-5) since it already has parenthesis. We also have to add a addition sign with 4x-5.

$$(\frac{2}{5})(4x+-5)$$

Now let’s separate everything.

$$(\frac{2}{5})(4x) +(\frac{2}{5})(-5)$$

This equals to:

$$\frac{8}{5}x-2\text{(ANSWER)}$$

Hope this helps!
