week 8- Using distributive property

This week I learned how to use distributive properties while multiplying a polynomial by a monomial. To do this I learned to do the following steps…

Ex. -5(2x² + x – 6)

= -10x² – 5x + 30

We then distribute the the -5 into the brackets. In this process we expanded the polynomial expressions by using the distributive property a(b + c) = ab + ac and the exponent rule xᵃ × xᵇ = xᵃ ⁺ ᵇ
