Lesson Summary:

In this lesson, you will learn how to simplify expressions using the distributive property. The distributive property is when you distribute a term via multiplication to each and every term inside of a currency. This can be applied to problems with numbers or letters, and is useful for simplifying expressions. By multiplying the outside term to each term inside the parentheses, you can easily simplify your expression.

How to simplify using the distributive property

I show how to solve math problems online during live instruction in class. This is my way of providing free tutoring for the students in my class and for students anywhere in the world. Every video is a short clip that shows exactly how to solve math problems step by step. The problems are done in real time and in front of a regular classroom. These videos are intended to help you learn how to solve math problems, review how to solve a math problems, study for a test, or finish your homework. I post all of my videos on YouTube, but if you are looking for other ways to interact with me and my videos you can follow me on the following pages through My Blog, Twitter, or Facebook.

    I think the teacher should speak a little slower. The examples were good.
