**How to solve a Distributive Property equation**

3(x - 4) = 9

x - 4

x - 4

x - 4

---------

3x - 12 = 12

*3 groups of a number and 3 is 12*

Example:

5 z + 2

5 z + 2 - 2 = 22 - 2

5 z = 20

---------

5 5

x = 4

Verify:

5 z + 2 = 22

5 (4) + 2 =

20 + 2 = 22

22 = 22

Constant - A number that does not change

Coefficient - The number that is
multiplying the variable

Variable - A letter that represents
an unknown number. In 5z - 3 the variable is "z"
