Solutions

Chapter 1.1, Problem 17E
To determine

To rewrite: the given expression by using Distributive Property of addition.

Expert Solution

Answer to Problem 17E

Using Distributive property over addition of real numbers the expression can be written as 4A+4B .

Explanation of Solution

Given information:

An expression is given as

  4(A+B)

Calculation:

Distributive property over addition of real numbers:

Suppose a ,b, and c are three real numbers, Distributive property says that

  a(b+c)=ab+ac

Product of a number with a sum can be changed to sum of products.

Therefore, 4(A+B) , can be written by using Distributive property over addition of real numbers, as 4A+4B .

  4(A+B)=4A+4B
