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?
Hey bro, what is 1 x 4?
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?
