2 ϩ 4x͒ Ϫ ͑3 Ϫ 4x͒ ϩ 5 Ϫ͑Ϫ3 ϩ 6x͒ ϩ x ϩ 1 31. To solve the linear equation 8x 2x Ϫ Ϫ13, 3 4 we are allowed to multiply each side by the least common denominator of all the fractions in the equation. What is this least common denominator? 32. 12͑x ϩ 5000͒ 940, we multiply each side by a power of 10 so that all coefficients are integers. What is the smallest power of 10 that will accomplish this goal? 33. Suppose that in solving the equation 1 1 1 x ϩ x x, 3 2 6 you begin by multiplying each side by 12, rather than the least common denominator, 6.

These arithmetic examples are generalized to all real numbers as the distributive property of multiplication with respect to addition, or simply the distributive property. An Addison-Wesley product.
