1. The Distributive Property Chapter 1 Section 7

2. Distribute • To spread out evenly or disperse

3. Property Itself • Let a, b, and c be real numbers: Where

4. How does the Distributive Property Work? • You can use the Distributive Property to simplify the product of a number and a sum or the product of a number and a difference. 3 (x + 2) = (x + 2) + (x + 2) + (x + 2) = (x + x + x) + (2 + 2 + 2) = 3x + 3(2)

5. Term • A number, a variable, or the product of a number and one or more variables. A A • X 2AB

6. Constant • A term that has no variable. • The value of a “constant” remains the same all the time. 1 5 75 18

7. Coefficient • A numerical factor of a term 2x 2 is the coefficient

8. Like Terms • Terms with the same variable factor -2ab and 4ab xyz and yzx
