Rewrite the expression 10 times 47
minus 10 times five using the distributive property.
First, in order to rewrite this
expression, you need to remember what the distributive property says. It says 𝑎 times 𝑏 plus 𝑐 is the
same thing as saying 𝑎 times 𝑏 plus 𝑎 times 𝑐. In this problem, the 10 has already
been distributed to the 47 and the five. We wanna change it so that the 47
and five are being added together before the multiplication happens.
So, first, we’ll take the 47 and
the five and put them in a group with parentheses, 47 plus five. And then, we multiply that sum by
10. This is our new expression, 10
times 47 plus five.
