**How to solve a Distributive Property equation**

4 (m - 3) = 12

m - 3

m - 3

m - 3

m - 3

---------

4m - 12 = 12

*4 groups of a number and 3 is 12*

Example:

3 x + 1

3 x + 1 - 1 = 10 - 1

3 x = 9

---------

3 3

x = 3

Verify:

3 x + 1 = 10

3 (3) + 1 = 10

9 + 1 = 10

10 = 10

Variable - A letter that represents an unknown number. In 4a - 6 the variable is "a"
