Question

Use the Distributive Property to find the price of 4 CDs that cost $14.99 each.
A.$60.40
B.$56.00
C.$59.96
D.$60.00

2 Answer

  • Our equation for this problem would be 
    14.99 × 4 = x
    Let x be the total price. Just multiply together and we get
    x = 59.96
    So the answer is C. $59.96
    Hope I helped!
  • the distributive property is the property in mathematics that allows us to multiply one term with two or more terms inside a set of parentheses, such as [tex] x(y+z)[/tex]

    If [tex] x = 2[/tex], then [tex] x(y+z) = 2(y+z) = 2y+2z[/tex]

    In your problem, the [tex] x[/tex] of my made-up formula is 4 and the [tex](y+z)[/tex] is $14.99, therefore you should set up your equation as [tex]4(14.99) = ?[/tex]
