HW: Distributive Property Wksht
Patrick knows that the area of the rectangle is 32 square units. He writes the following equation to find the value of n:
2(n+3) = 32
Do you agree with the equation Patrick wrote? Explain why or why not.
Classwork: The class reviewed the concept of distributive property, and then applied it to situations involving variables. We tied in combining like-terms to bridge our understanding to equation solving.
