#### Solutions

Chapter 1.1, Problem 18E
To determine

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

Expert Solution

Using Distributive property over addition of real numbers the expression can be written as 5(x+y) .

### Explanation of Solution

Given information:

An expression is given as

5x+5y

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, 5x+5y , can be written by using Distributive property over addition of real numbers, as 5(x+y) .

5x+5y=5(x+y)
