Distributive Property
Distributive Property using GCF
We can rewrite an addition problem as the sum of two numbers with their greatest common factor as a common multiplier. It sounds way more confusing than it really is.
How do you do it? Start with an addition problem like Somenumber + Someothernumber = ?
Find the GCF of the set of numbers in the problem. This GCF will be the number on the outside of the parenthesis of the new expression. Next, use the quotient of the GCF and the original number as the number on the inside of the parenthesis. Do this for each of the original numbers. Your new expression should look like ////// TheGCF ( somenewnumber + someothernewnumber ) .
