okay thank you... can you help me with this one? Your Math class has 32 students. You would like to treat the class to cookies. You would like each person to have 5 cookies. Which expression would be a quick way to figure out how many cookies you would need to bake? a 5(32 + 2) b 5(30 + 2) c 5(32 − 2) d 5(30 − 2)

You can also do it using the distributive property: 5(30 + 2) = 5(30) + 5(2) = 150 + 10 = 160
