Property
The Distributive Property
Camping: You and a friend are going on a camping trip. You each buy a backpack that costs
\$90 and a sleeping bag that cost \$60. What is the total cost of the camping equipment?
Example 1
Evaluating Numerical Expressions
You can use two methods to find the total cost of the camping equipment described above.
Method 1:
Find the cost of one backpack and one sleeping bag. Then multiply the
result by 2, the number of each item bought.
Total Cost
=
2( 90 + 60 )
2 (150)
300
Method 2:
Find the cost of one backpack and one sleeping bag. Then multiply the
result by 2, the number of each item bought.
Total Cost
=
2 (90) + 2 (60 )
180 + 120
300
Answer: The total cost of the
camping equipment is \$300
2.2
The Distributive Property
Algebra
a(b + c) = ab + ac
Numbers
4 (6 + 3) = 4(6) + 4(3)
(b + c) a = ba + ca
(6 + 3) 4 = 6(4) + 3(4)
a(b – c) = ab – ac
5 (7– 2) = 5(7) – 5(2)
(b – c) a = ba – ca
(7 – 2) 4 = 7(5) – 2(5)
Vocabulary: When you use the distributive property, you
distribute the number outside the parentheses to each
number inside the parentheses separated by + or − :
a(b+c)=ab+ac

The Distributive Property
Example 2
Using the Distributive Property
Goedes: After touring a cave, you visit the gift shop and buy 3 geodes. Each geode costs
\$5.95. Use the distributive property and mental math to find the total cost of the geodes.
Solution
Total cost
= 3 (5.95)
Write expression for total cost
= 3 (6 − 0.05)
Rewrite 5.95 as 6 – 0.05
= 3 (6) – 3 (0.05)
Distributive property

Answer: The total cost of the
geodes is \$17.85

2x+5
a.
Use the formula for the area of a
rectangle
b. Use the formula for the area of a
Triangle
A=lw
A = ½ bh = ½ (12) ( 8 – 3 y )
= ( 2 x + 5) ( 7 )
=6(8–3y)
=2x(7)+5(7)
= 6 (8) – 6 (3y)
14 x + 35
= 48 – 18 y
Answer: The area is ( 14 x + 35 )
square units.
Answer: The area is ( 48 – 18 y )
square units.

Simplifying Variable Expressions
2.3
Vocabulary:
Term (values separated by ADD or SUBTRACT operation)
Coefficient (number value that precede a variable, 5x )
Constant Term ( a number value with no variable, 5)
Like Terms ( values that has the same variable with the same exponent, 3x + 4x)
Example 1
Identify the terms, like terms, coefficients, and constant terms of the expression y + 8 – 5y – 3
Solution
1) Write the expression as a sum: y + 8 + (– 5y) + (– 3)
2) Identify the parts of the expression. Note that because y = 1y, the coefficient of y is 1
Terms: y, 8, – 5y. – 3
Like terms; y and – 5y; 8 and – 3
Coefficients: 1, – 5
Constant terms: 8, – 3
Simplifying Variable Expressions
Example 2 : Simplifying and Expression
4n – 7 – n + 9 = 4n + (– 7) + (– n ) + 9
= 4n + (– n) + (– 7 ) + 9
= 4n + (– 1n) + (– 7 ) + 9
= [4 + (– 1) ] n + (– 7 ) + 9
= 3n + 2
Write as a sum
Commutative property
Coefficient of – n is – 1
Distributive property
Simplify
A quick way to combine like terms containing variables is to add their
coefficients mentally. For example, 4n + (– n) = 3n Because 4 – 1 = 3
Example 3 : Simplifying Expressions with parentheses
a.) 2 (x – 4) + 9 x+ 1 = 2x – 8 + 9x + 1
= 2x – 8 + 9x + 1
= 11x – 7
b) 3k – 8 (k + 2) = 3k – 8k – 16
= – 5 k – 16
c) 4a – ( 4a – 3 ) = 4a – 1 (4a – 3 )
= 4a – 4a + 3

An Equation is a mathematical sentence formed by placing an equal sign, =,
between two expressions.
A Solution of an equation with a variable is a number that produces a true
statement when it is substituted for the variable.
Numerical Expression is an expression, with no equation or inequality, that
has no variables, just numbers. Ex. 3 ( 6 + 2 )
Variable Expression is an expression, with no equation or inequality, that
has at lease one variable. Ex. 3 ( x + 2 )
