1. 6.3.2 – Using Distributive Property

2. Recall, what defines a like term in terms of variables and powers? • Examples; xy3 and 21xy3 • How did we combine like terms with addition or subtraction?

3. At times, we may have to do another step before we can begin to combine like terms and add or subtract • Recall, your order of operations • PEMDAS

4. Distributive Property • If we have to use the distributive property, we will multiply EACH term by the coefficient preceding the groups of terms • Then, we may add and subtract similar to before • What to keep in mind; • 1) Multiply each term • 2) Utilize properties of exponents • 3) Combine like terms using your vertical method

5. Example.

6. Assignment • Pg. 312, 9, 10, 28-33
