Multiplying and Dividing Real Numbers Objective: To multiply and divide real numbers.

Essential Understanding The rules for multiplying real numbers are related to the properties of real numbers and the definitions of operations.

Essential Understanding The rules for multiplying real numbers are related to the properties of real numbers and the definitions of operations. The product of two positive numbers is positive. The product of two negative numbers is positive. The product of a positive and a negative is negative.

Problem 1 Find each product. 12(-8) = -96 24(0.5) = 12

Problem 2 Simplify each square root.

Problem 4 Divide the following fractions.

The Distributive Property Let a, b, and c be real numbers. a(b+c) = ab + ac (b+c)a = ba + ca a(b – c) = ab – ac (b – c )a = ba - ca

Problem 1 3(x + 8) = 3x + 24 (5b – 4)(-7) = -35b + 28

Got it? a)5(x + 7) b) c)

Got it? a)5(x + 7) = 5x + 35 b) c)

Got it? a)5(x + 7) = 5x + 35 b) c)

Got it? a)5(x + 7) = 5x + 35 b) c)
