On a recent welding trip, Russ took 4 students out to McDonalds. Each person that went to eat order 2 double cheeseburgers(c), 3 small fries(f), 1 milkshake(m), and 1 apple pie(p).

Using the distributive property, how could I find how many of each item was ordered? There are 5 people that went to eat, Russ and 4 Students. Thus, equaling 5 total people. Looking at the previous slide where I attached variables to each food item, I can write the algebraic expression as follows:

5( 2c + 3f + 1m + 1p) In order to simplify this problem and use the distributive property, I can distribute the 5 to each coefficient and multiply. By multiplying each coefficient by 5,

I came up with the following answer:

10c + 15f + 5m + 5p Climbing the Mountain of Doom... I mean learning how to use the distributive Property! How do I Distribute the 5??? Writing the Equation Distributive Property Project Simplified Answer The 5 representing total number of people. The coefficients and variables representing the quantity of each item purchased by one person. 5 ( 2c + 3f + 1m + 1c ) Which means that they ordered a total of 10 cheeseburgers, 15 small fries, 5 milkshakes, and 5 pies.
