Lesson Summary:

In this lesson, we learn how to use the distributive property to multiply a monomial by a trinomial. We multiply the monomial by every term inside the parentheses, and then combine the like terms using the rules of exponents. Through this process, we can simplify and write the answer in a way that doesn't contain any redundancies.

Lesson Description:

Using the distributive property from a monomial to a trinomial

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.
