## deadpool123 one year ago Which expressions show how 6 • 45 can be rewritten using the distributive property? Choose all answers that are correct. A. 6 • 40 + 6 • 5 B. 6 • 40 − 6 • 5 C. 6 • 50 – 6 • 5 D. 6 • 50 + 5

1. freckles

The 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)

2. freckles

You can also write as a difference

3. SCARLET_SPIDER

4. calculusxy

that is incorrect

5. cwrw238

6. myininaya

Why are the answers being given?

7. SCARLET_SPIDER

No it's not 6 times 50 is 300 and 6 times 5 is 30

8. SCARLET_SPIDER

Next using the ORDER OF OPERATION you will do 300 - 30 and you get 270 which is 6 times 45

9. calculusxy

but that is not using the distributive property formula

10. cwrw238

if you look carefully there are 2 correct options

11. SCARLET_SPIDER

You don't need to use distributive property @calculusxy look at the problem again

12. SCARLET_SPIDER

Wait my bad @calculusxy sorry I wasn't paying attention

13. calculusxy

no problem

14. calculusxy

you have to break down the number 45
