## staceyyyy1 3 years ago Identify which distributive property problem below would help you solve the following scenario: Your English class has 23 students. You would like to treat the class to cookies. You would like each person to have 3 cookies. Which expression would be a quick way to figure out how many cookies you would need to bake? 3(23 + 3) 3(20 − 3) 3(23 − 3) 3(20 + 3)

3. staceyyyy1

First One?

4. ParthKohli

5. mud116

6. ParthKohli

7. mud116

to stacey not U!

8. ParthKohli

9. mud116

LET Stacey try

10. ParthKohli

Alright @staceyyyy1 Hint, this question is easy but it's like a confusing one for n00bz

11. mud116

wow dude really!!!!!!?

12. mud116

You are such a mini troll

13. staceyyyy1

The Last One.

14. ParthKohli

Thank you if mini-troll is in the positive sense.

15. ParthKohli

@staceyyyy1 YEP! Y'know why?

16. mud116

see i knew she would figure it out :D

17. staceyyyy1

Because 20+3 = The Amount Of Students x 3 The Amount Of Cookies For Each Student.

18. mud116

see parth she isn't a noob

19. ParthKohli

Yeah, let me say it. The expression should be: $$\Large \color{purple}{\rightarrow 3(23) }$$ But, to make it confusing, they've made it: $$\Large \color{purple}{\rightarrow 3(20 + 3) }$$ If we 20 + 3 = 23, right? You can even solve both and you get the same answer :)

20. ParthKohli

Can I have a medal if you guys don't mind giving?

21. mud116

stacey figured it out!!!!

22. staceyyyy1

Thank You. It Threw Me Off. f. And Whats A Noob?

23. ParthKohli

I've given the reason, the exact one.

24. ParthKohli

Noob = Neophyte = Amateur.

25. mud116

26. ParthKohli
