Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The distributive property is a(b+c)=ab+ac you have 6(45) I guess what is means is to write this in ab+ac form... so first rewrite 45 as a sum (try to look at your choices for a hint in to what sum you are to write it as)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Next using the ORDER OF OPERATION you will do 300  30 and you get 270 which is 6 times 45

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3well you can use the distributive property to answer this the choices are in this form ab+ac except only choices that have this form are A,B, and C. Now I'm not saying all of these will work. I'm just saying they all have the form ab+ac form. ab+ac can be written as a(b+c) so you have 6(45) The trick is to rewrite 45 as a sum or a difference using the numbers in the choices that do work. Then use distributive property once you have written 45 as a sum and/or difference.
