Equivalent expressions examples

Follow these rules to determine if two expressions are equal

1st - Use the distributive property on the left expression.

2nd - Combine all like terms on the left side.

3rd - Use the distributive property on the right

expression.

4th - Combine all like terms on the right side.

5th - See if the two sides equal one another - remember

the commutative property in case the order is different on

both sides.

Commutative Property States: This rule just says that, when you are doing addition, it doesn't matter which order the numbers are in. You can move stuff around.
