PreAlgebra 2 Chapter 2 Notes The Distributive 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 2.2 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 18 – 0.15 Multiply using mental math 17.85 Subtract using mental math Answer: The total cost of the geodes is $17.85 2.2 The Distributive Property Example 3 Writing Equivalent Variable Expressions Use the distributive property to write an equivalent variable expression. a. 3 ( x + 7) = 3 (x) + 3 (7) = 3 x + 21 b. c. ( n + 4) (–2) = n (–2) + 4 (–2) –5 (2y –3) Distributive property Multiply Distributive property = – 2 n + (–8) Multiply =–2n–8 Definition of subtraction = –5 (2y) – (–5) (3) Distributive property = – 10 y – (–15) Multiply = – 10 y + 15 Definition of subtraction 2.2 2.2 The Distributive Property Finding Areas or Geometric Figures Example 4 Find the area of the rectangle or triangle 8–3y 7 12 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. The Distributive Property Example 2 Using the Distributive Property Goedes: After touring a cave, you visit the gift shop and buy 3 geodes.

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 =0+3 =3 Distributive property Group like terms Combine like terms Distributive property Combine like terms Identity property Distributive property Combine like terms Simplify 2.3 2.3 Simplifying Variable Expressions Correct the error in this problem: 5a – (3a – 7 ) = 5a – 3a – 7 = 2a – 7 The error in this problem is – • – = +: 5a – (3a – 7 ) = 5a – 3a + 7 = 2a + 7 Guided Practice 1) What are terms that have a number but no variable called? 1)______________ 2) What is the coefficient of y in the expression 8 – 3 y + 1 ? 2)______________ 3) 6x + x + 2 + 4 3) 7x + 6 4) – 4 k – 12 + 3k 4) – 1 k – 12 5) 5n + 1 – n – 8 5) 4 n – 7 6) 5x + 2 + 3(x – 1) 6) 8 x – 1 7) – 7 (2r + 3) + 11 r 7) – 3 r – 21 8) p + 6 – 6 (p – 2 ) 8) – 5p + 18 2.4 Variables and Equations 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.
