1
The Distributive Property Purpose: To use the distributive property Outcome: To simplify algebraic expressions

2
Vocabulary: Distributive Property, terms, constant, coefficient, and like terms Property: Distributive property For every real number a, b, and c, a(b + c) = ab + ac (b + c) a = ba + ca a(b - c) = ab – ac (b - c) a = ba - ca

3
-You can use the distributive property to simplify an algebraic expression. An Algebraic expression in simplest form has no grouping symbols. - A term is a number, a variable or the product of a number and one or more variables -A constant is a term that as o variable. -A coefficient is a numerical factor of a term - Like terms have exactly the same variables factors

4
1) Simplify the following expression: a) 5( x + 3) + 2x b) (10a + 2b)4 2) Simplify then, identify the term(s), constant, variable(s), and the numerical coefficients of the algebraic expression. 10(2b + 3c +4) + 5c 3) Which terms are like terms? 2y, -4x 123, & 5y
