Running head: LIKE TERMS1Distributive PropertyKimberly SmithMAT 221 Introductions to AlgebraInstructor: Andrew HalversonFebruary 15,2014
REAL NUMBERS2I will be using distributive property to solve how properties of real numbers are used while I simplified the three given expression. To solve these three math problem I will use the distributive property to remove the parentheses in the problem. I will also combine like terms byadding coefficients and add or subtract when needed. Finally I would have my answer and then decide if the answer is simplified, if not I will simplify. The solving of properties of real number the properties of real numbers are important to know in all subjects, even complex numbers, because many of the properties are shared.Additionally the argument to any equation in algebra is real; therefore, algebraic expressions only manipulate reals (that is, if you have integer coefficients and no radicals).
