First, use the distributive property to simplify 3.2(x+y)and 2.3(x+y):
3.2x+3.2y+2.3x+2.3y+4x
Now color-code the like terms:
3.2x+3.2y+2.3x+2.3y+4x
Combine like terms:
9.5x+5.5y

3.2(x+y)+2.3(x+y)+4x
Use the distributive property to multiply 3.2by x+y.
3.2x+3.2y+2.3(x+y)+4x
Use the distributive property to multiply 2.3by x+y.
3.2x+3.2y+2.3x+2.3y+4x
Combine 3.2x and 2.3x to get 5.5x.
5.5x+3.2y+2.3y+4x
Combine 3.2y and 2.3y to get 5.5y.
5.5x+5.5y+4x
Combine 5.5x and 4x to get 9.5x.
9.5x+5.5y
