### SIMPLIFICATION OF BRACKETS

Simplification of brackets in an expression means expansion of brackets. We can remove brackets from an expression by expanding them by multiplication. We use distributive law of multiplication over addition or subtraction. Generally, it can be written as:- The terms inside the bracket are like terms. We can solve this by two methods.

- Here the terms are unlike. This can be simplified by multiplying the number outside the bracket with the terms inside the bracket and add the products.

Condition | Rule |

Open the bracket and add the terms. | |

Open the bracket and multiply the negative sign with each term inside the bracket.(All positive terms will be negative and vice-versa) | |

Multiply term outside with each term inside the bracket |
