### Distributive Property

The Distributive Property of multiplication is the property that states that multiplying a sum by a number is the same as multiplying each addend by the number and then adding the products. The Distributive Property says that if a, b and c are real numbers,

then a(b + c) = (a x b) + (a x c)

• An Addend is a number that is added to another number.

• 2 + 3 = 5

• Real Numbers are all irrational and rational numbers. Real numbers are the Umbrella that other numbers fall inside of.

• Any real number that is not a rational number and not an imaginary number. An example of an irrational number is the square root of 2 because it cannot be written as a ratio of two integers. Pi is also an irrational number.

• Rational Numbers are numbers that can be written as a ratio of two integers. A fraction containing a numerator and denominator that are integers. Every integer is a rational number. It comes from the word ratio.

36 + 8 = 44 Step 1 4 (9 + 2) =

Step 2 (4 x 9) + (4 x 2) =

Answer 36 + 8 = 44

• 7 (8 + 3)

2) 3 ( 6 + 9)

Are these equal?

3) 55 + 10 = 11 (5 + 0) =

4) 27 + 3 = 9 (3 + 1) =
