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:
$\frac{2m-5}{9}$
Any help is appreciated

Another way to write
$\frac{2m-5}{9}$
is
$\frac{1}{9}\left(2m-5\right)$
From this it is much easier to see how the distributive property applies. We get
$\frac{1}{9}\left(2m\right)-\frac{1}{9}\left(5\right)=\frac{2m}{9}-\frac{5}{9}$

$\frac{2m-5}{9}=\frac{1}{9}\left(2m-5\right)=\frac{2m}{9}-\frac{5}{9}$
You have distributed the fraction
$\frac{1}{9}$
in order to write the original expression as a difference.
