## anonymous one year ago Which algebraic property is used to rewrite 2(4y + 1) as (4y + 1)(2)? Distributive property Associative property Commutative property of multiplication Commutative property of addition

1. anonymous

Do you know what each of the properties are?

2. anonymous

Can you rule out any of the answers that you know are wrong for sure

3. anonymous

yes C is def wrong

5. anonymous

Well what are you doing to start off with what operation?

6. anonymous

well Idk this kind of math is hard

7. anonymous

You are using multiplication

8. anonymous

So we can rule out answer D and B

9. anonymous

So its A?

10. anonymous

Are you distributing the 4 to any of the other parts of the equation?

11. anonymous

yes/no?

12. anonymous

You aren't all you are doing is moving the 4 to another place in the equation by doing this you will not affect the answer at all

13. anonymous

and thats distributive property! Thank you!

Why do you think C is wrong? Did the computer say it was wrong?

15. anonymous

Its not it is Commutative property of multiplication the Commutative property of multiplication allows you to move a # that is being multiplied and by doing so will not change the answer to the equation

• is multiplication and you are moving the 4
