Simplifying ExpressionsSimplifying expressions is one of the core basics for algebra simplification. The goal istaking thedistributive property, which is used to apply multiplying a number by a group ofnumbers added together, but it is used in theremoval of the parentheses. It is combining LikeTerms, which must have the same variable or exponent and simplifying those expressions. Weare taking these algebraic expressions and applying the five core terms in this step by stepevaluation of the three given equations.The following three given expression will be shown how to actively use thedistributivepropertyin order to accurately succeed in theremoval of the parentheses.2a(a-5) + 4(a-5)The Given Expression.2a2-10a+4(a-5)Thedistributive propertyincludes thevariables added to the exponent.2a2-10a+4a-20The distributive propertyremoves theparentheses.2a2-6a-20Adding thecoefficientsby the combinedLike Terms.The simplified expression: 2a2-6a-20.The expression doesn’t need to besimplifiedlonger since nothing else can go into theexpressions since thelike termshave already been simplified in order. While simplifying thefollowing expressions, the properties of real numbers will be used and identified. The math workwill be aligned on above on the left while the discussion of properties is on the right side of eachline.
