This Instructional Activity is a part of the Lesson 9, Unit 6, Grade 6. This is for practice going back and forth with the distributive property using numbers, but also to make the point that invoking the distributive property can help you do computations in your head. Some expressions that would be difficult to brute force become simpler after using the distributive property to write an equivalent expression. Note that there is more than one way to rewrite the last row.
