#### Transcript of The Distributive Property

The Distributive Property

When you think of the word Distributive what comes to your mind?

Expressions 3(4+2) and 3(4) + 3(2) are equivalent expressions

Use the Distributive Property to write each expressions an an equivalent expression. Then evaluate the expressions

The Distributive Property

You can use algebra tiles to investigate

how the Distributive Property relates to algebraic expressions.

Algebra Activity

You can model the Distributive Property by using Algebra tiles

Algebraic Expressions

1. 3(x + 1)

Example 3: Simplify Algebraic Expressions

DISTRIBUTIVE

They are written differently but both have the value of 18

That's what makes them equivalent which means the SAME!

Distributive Property

1) 2(6 + 4)

2) (8 + 3)5

2. (y + 4)5

Example 4: Simplify Expressions with Subtraction

a. 2(x - 1)

b. -3(n - 5)

**ThE EnD**

Now you try:

1. 2(9 + 1)

2. -6(x - 5)

3. 2(x + 3)

4. 8(y - 2)
