## TACHS: Algebraic Distribution - Chapter Summary

Before your student is admitted to a New York area Catholic high school, he or she may need to take the TACHS examination. This chapter allows your student to discover the importance of algebraic distribution. It outlines the use of the distributive property as well as the rules for distributing variables, multiplying fractional exponents and simplifying expressions. Your child could review how to:

• Correctly solve distribution problems
• Determine when to add first or distribute first
• Solve practice distribution problems that have positive and negative signs
• Distribute variables and numbers
• Switch from negative exponents to fractions
• Work with fractional powers

Usually lasting about ten minutes or less each, these fun videos are delivered by experienced mathematics instructors. Your student can prepare for the TACHS examination by going over the videos online, taking notes and completing the practice problems. Accessible 24/7 via a mobile device, the videos include transcripts, quizzes and an ask-an-expert feature.
