i need to use mental math and the distributive property to simplify:
can you pls check if this correct?
a) 19(-6) i got: -114
or do i do like this:
10*(-6)=-60
9*(-6) =-54
-60 + -54= -114

b) 102* \$21 i got: \$2142
or do i do mental math like this:
100*21 = 2100
2 * 21 = 42
2100 + 42 = \$2142

c) 26*97 i got: 2522
or do i do mental math like this:
20 * 97 = 1940
6* 97 = 582
1940 + 582 = 2522

d) 9 * \$4.98 i got: \$44.82
or do i do mental math like this:

9 * \$4.00 = \$36.00
9*.98 = 8.82
36.00 + 8.82 = \$44.82
