EXAMPLE 3 Standardized Test Practice CHECK 7p + 13 = 9p – 5 Write original equation. 7(9) (9) – 5 = ? Substitute 9 for p. – 5 = ? Multiply. 76 = 76 Solution checks.

Solve an equation using the distributive property
EXAMPLE 4 Solve an equation using the distributive property Solve 3(5x – 8) = – 2(– x + 7) – 12x. 3(5x – 8) = – 2(– x + 7) – 12x Write original equation. 15x – 24 = 2x – 14 – 12x Distributive property 15x – 24 = – 10x – 14 Combine like terms. 25x – 24 = –14 Add 10x to each side. 25x = 10 Add 24 to each side. x = 2 5 Divide each side by 25 and simplify. ANSWER The solution 2 5

EXAMPLE 4 Solve an equation using the distributive property CHECK 3 ( – 8) – 2(– ) – 12 2 5 = ? 2 5 Substitute for x. 3( – 6) –14 – 4 5 = ? 24 Simplify. – 18 = – 18 Solution checks.

EXAMPLE 5 Solve a work problem Car Wash It takes you 8 minutes to wash a car and it takes a friend 6 minutes to wash a car. How long does it take the two of you to wash 7 cars if you work together? SOLUTION STEP 1 Write a verbal model. Then write an equation.

Solve the equation for t. STEP 2 1 8 t + t = 7 6 24( t + t) = 24 (7) 1
EXAMPLE 5 Solve a work problem Solve the equation for t. STEP 2 1 8 t t = 7 6 Write equation. 24( t + t) = 24 (7) 1 8 6 Multiply each side by the LCD, 24. 3t + 4t = 168 Distributive property 7t = 168 Combine like terms. t = 24 Divide each side by 7. ANSWER It will take 24 minutes to wash 7 cars if you work together.
