#### Transcript Distributive Property

```Do Now
1. Write down any math properties you know
and give an example. (ex. Commutative)
2. Write down any similarities or differences
between expressions and equations
Objective
The student will be able to:
• Identify parts of an algebraic
expression
A term is a
1) number,
2) variable, or
3) a product / quotient of numbers
and variables.
Example
5
m
2x2
A term is a
*** Terms are separated by either an
sign (-).
4x + 5y
(2 terms)
3r * 5p
(1 term)
The coefficient is
the numerical part of the term.
Examples
1) 4a

A constant is
a fixed value.
Examples
1) 3x – 5y + 12

2) 12p – 4 + 13w + 9
4 and 9
Identify the number of terms, coefficients,
variables, and constants
1. 4w + 3f – 9p + 2c2 – 10
2. 7h + 9k * 3d – 11m
3. 12 - 14d ÷ 7j – 2z
4. 5a3 + 129
End of day 1
Objective
The student will be able to:
• Review parts of an algebraic
expression
• Understand and use the
distributive property
The Distributive Property
The process of distributing the number
on the outside of the parentheses to
each term on the inside.
a(b + c) = ab + ac and (b + c) a = ba + ca
a(b - c) = ab - ac and (b - c) a = ba - ca
Example #1
5(x + 7)
5•x+5•7
5x + 35
Example #2
3(m - 4)
3•m-3•4
3m - 12
Example #3
2(y + 3)
2•y+2•3
2y + 6
Which statement demonstrates the
distributive property incorrectly?

3(x + y + z) = 3x + 3y + 3z
(a + b) c = ac + bc
5(2 + 3x) = 10 + 3x
6(3k - 4) = 18k - 24
Like Terms are terms with the same
variable AND exponent.
To simplify expressions with like
terms, simply combine the like
terms.
Are these like terms?
1) 13k, 22k
Yes, the variables are the same.
2) 5ab, 4ba
Yes, the order of the variables
doesn’t matter.
3) x3y, xy3
No, the exponents are on different
variables.
