** How Can I Use This? ** Fred ordersd Mr. Walker and a friend sell candy bars for a fundraiser over a span of three days. Mr. Walker sold the same number of bars each day, but doesnt remember how many candy bars he sold. His friend sold four bars every day. How many bars did they sell?

3(x + 4) = 3x + 12

Do Now
Jenni always works three times as many hours as Scott. If Scott works his typical 4 hours on Monday and twice that amount on Tuesday, how many hours does Jenni work over the same time period? What is the question asking?

What do I need to know first?

How will that help me answer the question?

1.2 The Distributive Property


Essential Vocabulary
Distributive Property

Product

Variable

Coefficient

Teacher Model
1. Multiplying Example 1 with Variables
(3) (2x) =

Using the Distributive Property


3(2x + 5) =

(4) (2x) = 2. Example 2

4(2x + 3) =

(2) (x) =

2(x + 6) =

1.2 The Distributive Property


Steps for the Distributive Property
1. Determine what the question is asking 2. Multiply the outside number with both of the inside numbers
a. Multiply the outside number with the first term b. Multiply the outside number with the second term

3. Simplify the expression (if possible)

Multiplying with Variables


Simplify the expression by multiplying the constant with the variable term. 1. (3) (8x) = 2. (2) (x) = 3. (4) (4x) =

1. (6) (3x) =

2. (2) (9x) =

3. (5) (x) =

Distributive Property
Simplify the expression by multiplying both inside terms by the outside term. 1. 7(2x + 8) = 2. 5(3x + 4) =

3. 3(5x + 2) =

4. 2(4x + 1) =

5. 4(6x + 3) =

6. 6(x + 9) =

[3]

1.2 The Distributive Property


Guided Practice
Simplify the expression by multiplying both inside terms by the outside term. 1. 4(x + 3) = 2. 2(3x + 7) =

3. 7(7x + 1) =

4. 5(2x + 6) =

5. 8(5x + 1) =

6. 9(x + 8) =

7. 7(8x + 2) =

8. 4(5x + 7) =

9. 2(6x + 4) =

10. 8(x + 2) =

11. 9(2x + 2) =

12. 5(x + 1) =

1.2 The Distributive Property


Partner Practice
Simplify the expression by multiplying both inside terms by the outside term. 1. 9(2x + 4) = 2. 5(6x + 9) =

3. 7(3x + 1) =

4. 8(4x + 5) =

5. 4(5x + 2) =

6. 9(x + 7) =

7. 7(8x + 2) =

8. 3(x + 7) =

9. 2(6x + 7) =

10. 6(5x + 2) =

11. 2(9x + 1) =

12. 5(x + 1) =
