    When using the distributive property, you must multiply everything in parentheses by what’s outside.
    1/2(6x+2)
    We would multiply 1/2 *6x and 1/2*2
    Therefore we should have 3x + 1.

    Answer:

    Angela needed to multiply \frac{1}{2} by each of the terms inside the parentheses.

    Her product when multiplying \frac{1}{2} X 2 is incorrect.

    Step-by-step explanation:

    For simplifying the expression \frac{1}{2}(3x+2), we need to multiply \frac{1}{2} by each of the terms inside the parentheses.

    So,

    Upon multiplying \frac{1}{2} by 6X we get 3X.

    Upon multiplying \frac{1}{2} by 2 we get 1.

    Thus the final simplified expression must be 3x+1

    So we can say,

    Angela needed to multiply \frac{1}{2} by each of the terms inside the parentheses.

    Her product when multiplying \frac{1}{2} X 2 is incorrect.
