Rewrite nineteen times thirty-four plus twenty-one using the distributive property.

Letโs remind ourselves what the distributive property says. Hereโs a representation of the distributive property: ๐ times ๐ plus ๐ equals ๐ times ๐ plus ๐ times ๐. Weโve taken our ๐ and distributed it across the ๐ and the ๐. Instead of adding ๐ plus ๐ and then multiplying by ๐, weโre gonna multiply our ๐ times the ๐, multiply our ๐ times the ๐, and then add them together. Both options produce the same value in the end; theyโre equal.

We want to rewrite nineteen times thirty-four plus twenty-one using the same property. How would we do that? We need to distribute the nineteen across the thirty-four and the twenty-one. This is what that would look like: nineteen times thirty-four plus nineteen times twenty-one.

We canโt forget that thereโs still an element of addition in the problem. Our question asked us to rewrite the expression using the distributive property. This is what that looks like: nineteen times thirty-four plus nineteen times twenty-one.
