How do you solve #4(2r+8)=88# using the distributive property?
Let's look at what the distributive property says first.
It says we can distribute a coefficient outside parenthesis amongst the terms inside.
We see the same pattern with this equation,
Therefore, we can distribute that equation as,
We can then subtract 32 from both sides,
then divide 8 from both sides to reach,
which is our answer.
