Algebra example: a(b+c)= ab + ac Real Life Distribution Pottstown Wal-mart Distribution Center: Houston Texas Boyertown D.P. with Addition 3(x + 2) = Use the Distributive Property: 3(x) + 3(2)= Now multiple: 3x + 6 This your answer Practice 2(x + 5)= 2(5 + x)= x(2 +5)= Answers 2(x + 5)= 2x + 10 2(5 + x)= 10 + 2x x(2 +5)= 2x + 10 D.P. with Subtraction Example: Apply the Distributive Property 3(1 –y)= Multiply, and keep the subtraction sign 3(1) – 3(y) Your answer 3 – 3y Practice 2(x –5) = 3(5 –x) = (x –5)3 = Answers 2(x –5) = 2x -10 3(5 –x) = 15 -3x (x –5)3 = 3x -15 Practice Page 104 # 17, 19, 21, 27 # 31, 33, 35, 39 Home Work Page 104 # 18-40 Even
