** How Can I Use This? ** Mr. Walker and a friend sell candy bars for a fundraiser over a span of two days. Fred ordersd Another friend could only work one day. Mr. Walker sold the same number of bars each day, but doesnt remember how many candy bars he sold. His friend sold six bars each day. How many bars did they sell in all? 2(x + 6) + 5= 2x + 17

Do Now
In preparation for a triathlon, Scotts goal is to ride his bike 75 miles per week. He rode 22 miles on Sunday, another 15 on Monday, and 9 on Wednesday. If he plans on riding 12 miles on Friday, how many miles would he have to ride on Saturday in order to meet his goal? What is the question asking?

What do I need to know first?

How will that help me answer the question?

1.3 Combining Like Terms


Steps for Combining Like Terms
1. Determine what the question is asking 2. Apply the Distributive Property
a. Multiply the outside number with the first term b. Multiply the outside number with the second term

3. Identify the Like Terms 4. Simplify the expression (if possible)

Guided Practice
Simplify the expression by distributing and combining like terms. 1. 7(2x + 8) + 9 2. 5(3x + 4) + x

3. 3(5x + 2) + 4 + 3x

4. 2(4x + 1) + 8x + 9

5. 3(3x + 8) + 6(2x + 7)

6. 6(x + 2) + 7(2x + 1)

1.3 Combining Like Terms


Partner Practice
Simplify the expression by distributing and combining like terms. 1. 4(9x + 2) + 5 2. 2(6x + 6) + 3x

3. 5x + 7(x + 8)

4. 11+ 5(2x + 3)

5. 8(2x + 1) + 4x + 2

6. 9(x + 8) + 9x + 8

7. 7(5x + 2) + 3 + 4x

8. 4(8x + 7) + 10x + 2

9. 2(3x + 4) + 2(3x + 4)

10. 8(x + 2) + 7(x + 5)

11. 9(2x + 2) + 5(2x + 8)

12. 5(x + 1) + 4(4x + 5)
