**Definitions**

Constant - A quantity that does not change its value.

Coefficient - A number multiplied by a variable in an algebraic expression.

Variable - A letter or symbol used to represent a number.

Distributive Property - The sum of two addends multiplied by a number is the sum of the product of each addend and the number.

Variable - A letter or symbol used to represent a number.

Distributive Property - The sum of two addends multiplied by a number is the sum of the product of each addend and the number.

**2 step multiplying equations**

**6r + 6 = 18**

First you isolate the variable, by isolating it you make a zero pair for your constant, then you do it on the other side because you did it there.

**6r + 6 - 6 = 18 - 6**

**6r = 12**

Then you balance it by dividing both sides by the coefficient then you fully have your variable isolated

__6r__=__12__**6 6**

**r = 2**

Now we verify it, first you rewrite your equation

**6r + 6 = 18**

Now substitute your variable with 3

**6(2) + 6 = 18**

Now you multiply your coefficient by 2

**12 + 6 = 18**

Now you verify it by adding your coefficient and your constant

**18 = 18**

And now you got your answer, here a link to learn more about 2 step multiplying equations

**2 step dividing equations**

__m__+ 2 = 18**3**

First you want to isolate the variable by making a zero pair for your constant then you do the same thing on the other side

__m__+ 2 - 2 = 18 - 2**3**

__m__= 16**3**

Then you it by multiplying your variable and you do the same thing on the other side

**(3)**

__m__= 16(3)**3**

__m__= 48
Now you verify it, first you rewrite your equation

__m__+ 2 = 18**3**

Now substitute your variable with 48

__48__+ 2 = 18**3**

The you divide your coefficient

**16 + 2 = 18**

Then you verify it by adding the coefficient with the constant

**18 = 18**

Now your done, here a link to learn more about 2 step dividing equations

**Distributive Property**

Now I will teach you about distributive equations

**4 (m - 3) = 12**

First you multiply the constant and the variable by the coefficient.

**4 (m - 3) = 12****m - 3****m - 3****m - 3****m - 3**
You would get

Then solve it like a 2 step multiply equation

Now I will do in a diagram

**4m - 12 = 12**Then solve it like a 2 step multiply equation

**4m - 12 + 12 = 12 + 12****4m = 24**__4m__= 24**4 4****m = 6****4m - 12 = 12****4(6) - 12 = 12****24 - 12 = 12****12 = 12**Now I will do in a diagram

**4 (m - 3) = 12**

Now you do the same steps as you would do on the 2 step multiply equation.

**4 (6 - 3) = 12**

**4 (3) = 12**

**12 = 12**

Now your done here's a link to learn more about Distributive Property

This the end of my post I hope you learned something.
