# Distributive property

How would I multiply these expression?

6(h-4)
-3(x+8)
-10(-a+5)

Multiply the coefficient (outside the parentheses) by each term inside the parentheses. For example,
6(h-4) = 6h - 24

You do the others

do you have 5th grade distributive property jiskha

simplify 9x(5+3)x4-6

hey u just simplify 9x*5 then multiply 9x*3 you add them then u * x4-6 okay?! is that good enough??

What does distributive property mean??

7. It's telling you to show how your smart brain can add two different multiplications and get the same answer as the original expression. For example: 12 x 4 is the same as (4x10) + (4x2). It is better to keep the smaller number from the expression (4 in this example) as is and ask yourself what two numbers I can add together and get 12 (the bigger number from the expression). It could be (!!!!!! 10 +2 or 6 +6 or 11 +1 or 12 +0........ and so on). But in my example I chose 10 and 2. So I multiply the numbers inside the parenthesis and add them together to prove that they equal the same as 12x4.

9. Well, Ariel, What they mean is like write the same expression except you are sudstituting the variable they gave you. For example if they say Write this as an expression 5Y+9=29 YOU HAVE TO SOLVE IT LIKE THIS OK WHATEVER YOU DO TO ONE SIDE YOU HAVE TO DO TO THE OTHER SO YOU ARE GOING TO PUT A MINUS SIGN UNDER 9 AND CANCEL THAT OUT. WELL, YOU HAVE TO CANCELL THAT OUT BECAUSE WE WANT THE VARIABLE TO BE ISOLATED WHICH MEANS ALONE THEN AFTER YOU MINUS 9 FROM 29 AND YOU GET 20 SO NOW YOU BRING DOWWN THE 5Y AND NOW YOU PUT A LINE UNDER 5Y AND THEN CROSS OUT BOTH 5'S SO THAT THE Y IS ALONE AND THEN YOU PUT 5 UNDER 20 BECAUSE YOU KNOW HOW I SAID WHATEVER YOU DO TO ONE SIDE YOU DO TO THE OTHER WELL, SEE HOW YOU PUT 5 UNDER THE 5Y YOU ARE PUTING 5 UNDER 2O NOW U DIVIDE 5 DIVIDEED BY 20. SO YOU ARE ASKING YOURSELF HOW MANY TIMES OES 5 GO INTO 20 WELL 4 TIMES SO THE ANSWER IS Y=4. IS THAT HELPFUL ENOUGH FOR YOU IF NOT WRITE BACK IF YOU CAN AND I'LL GIVE YOU AN EASIER PROBLEM. tHANX AND BYE FROM DANIELLE A.K.A DD FRESH
