# Math generic rectangles

posted by Jasmin

Out of all problems this one I just don't know. I started it but I'm unsure .can someone help me please.

Draw a generic rectangle to find each product. Then write a multiplication sentence with parenthesis for each one.

7 (1+11)

So I am thinking the multiplication part is :

111×7

Therefore:
7 (1+11)=7+77=84

The set up for the generic rectangle I don't know how to set it.

this is to get 7 * 12
one rectangle is 7 by one and the other is 7 by 11. They attach together to get 7 by 12 but it is easier to multiply 7 by 1 and 7 by 11 than to multiply 7 by 12 directly.
It is really just the distributive property
a(b + c) = ab + ac
