This is due Friday, I will still be here at that time so It has to be done! But I am leaving at 2:00!

- Ok so think about it, first to make the problem easier you have to break apart the 28 which would become 4x(20+8) Then you distribute the number outside the parenthesis which in this case is 4! Then you multiply 4 times 20= 80 and 4 times 8=32 then you add 80 and 32, and in all it equals 112!
- Sure what's the problem like?
- Hey mom, my teacher gave me this homework and I cant seem to figure it out can you help me?
- It goes like this " What is 4x28 in distributive form?"
- Hey sir, can I have a blue comic for $4, a red comic for $3, and a pink comic for $4 please?
- Well that's not the order I put it in!
- That doesn't really matter ma'am ! It all will still end up as the same amount of money!
- for example, 4 + (4 + 3) equals the same as 3 + (4+4)
- Ok, so that was a red comic for $3, a pink comic for $4 and a blue comic for $4?
- Yes, of course Paul, add 4 + 12 + 8 and then add 8 + 4 + 12 don't you get the same answer?
- Then that's your answer Paul!
- yeah of course, what do you need help with?
- Hey Cia, I'm kind of having some trouble can you help me?
- Ok, so lets say I have 4 blueberries, 12 strawberries, and 8 raspberries, and I have to add them. What happens if I switch it around will I still get the same answer?
- yeah!
- Hey bro, what is 1 x 4?
- 4 right?
- yep so 1 x 4= 4. Its also the same as 4 x 1!
- Well think about it, if you have 4 slices of cake and you don't want to share it, and you keep it for yourself how many slices do you have?
