THE DISTRIBUTIVE PROPERTY

In math class today, we learned about the Distributive Property on which the terms, 4x, 5x, 6x ( like terms ), etc. can be combined. Terms like 8x, 2y and 3x2 (<--supposed to be read three multiplied by a number to the exponent 2, but I don't know how to make the 2 smaller) are called unlike terms. Only like terms can be combined, not unlike terms. Here is an example:


When terms are read, for example, 5(x+6), we must expand the expression and remove them from the brackets by using multiplication. Doing this is done by using distributive property.
When read, 5(x+6), it isn't solved as you can see. When these problems are unsolved, they are called terms.




Each term inside the bracket (x and 6) is to be multiplied by the circled number outside the bracket (5). When these problems aren't solved, they are called terms.

Now, we have a quiz this Friday on this. It's time you got to know this solution. =] I'm sure you all do. This class is very bright and very smart. I hope what I have typed out has been done correctly. Good luck everyone! =]

Great Post. But Here's A Tip. When putting images try to emphasize the work in the image. Not the blank area. It looks better on the blog. ;)
