Why Do We Distribute in Algebra? - Explanation & Examples

1. Why Do We Distribute in Algebra? - Explanation & Examples

What's the purpose of distribution in algebra? In this lesson, we'll find out why we distribute. We'll also look at examples and sample problems that involve basic distribution.

Distributing First vs. Adding First: Differences & Examples

2. Distributing First vs. Adding First: Differences & Examples

When we need to simplify an expression, how do we know if we should distribute first or add first? In this lesson, we'll look at when this matters and how to make the best decision.

Distributing Positive and Negative Signs

3. Distributing Positive and Negative Signs

It's not just numbers and variables that get distributed. Positive and negative signs can, too. In this lesson, we'll learn how to distribute positive and negative signs correctly.

Distributing Algebraic Expressions with Numbers and Variables

4. Distributing Algebraic Expressions with Numbers and Variables

So, you can simplify an algebraic expression when you need to distribute a number? Great! But what if you need to distribute a variable or a variable with an exponent? Learn how in this lesson.

Changing Negative Exponents to Fractions

5. Changing Negative Exponents to Fractions

A negative exponent isn't like a normal exponent. In this lesson, we'll learn about negative exponents and how they lead us to fractions. We'll practice with numbers and variables.

Working With Fractional Powers

6. Working With Fractional Powers

If you know what to do with 3 to the second power, then you understand exponents. But what if the exponent is a fraction? Find out what to do with fractional powers in this lesson.

Distribution of More Than One Term in Algebra

7. Distribution of More Than One Term in Algebra

Once we've mastered distributing a single term, it's time to raise the stakes. In this lesson, we'll learn how about distribution involving two, three and even more terms.

Combining Like Terms: Definition, Simplifying & Practice

8. Combining Like Terms: Definition, Simplifying & Practice

Combining like terms is a mathematical process used to simplify an expression or to add or subtract polynomials. Learn how to recognize like terms and combine them in this lesson, then check your knowledge with a quiz.
