Distributive Propery with Fractions
I have several problems in this format and I don't know where to start. I understand the distributive property until I get to some fractions. The directions say write each fraction as a sum or difference. Here is an example of one of them:
2 m 5 9
Any help is appreciated

Another way to write
2 m 5 9
is
1 9 ( 2 m 5 )
From this it is much easier to see how the distributive property applies. We get
1 9 ( 2 m ) 1 9 ( 5 ) = 2 m 9 5 9

We have step-by-step solutions for your answer!

2 m 5 9 = 1 9 ( 2 m 5 ) = 2 m 9 5 9
You have distributed the fraction
1 9
in order to write the original expression as a difference.
