simplify expressions.

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)
-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
A term is a
1) number,
2) variable, or
3) a product / quotient of numbers
and variables.
Example
5
m
2x2
The coefficient is
the numerical part of the term.
Examples
1) 4a

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.

form of
-4x + 7x ?
