**Expanding Single Brackets**

In algebra, expanding brackets means to remove the brackets.

To expand brackets, we multiply everything on the inside by whatever is next to the bracket on the outside.

Make sure you include the sign.

There are different methods we can use to expand brackets: a jumping method or by using a grid.

Example:

2(3x - 4) = 6x - 8.

-3(2a - 5b) = -6a + 15b.
