Distributive strategy

Hi all how’s it going,

Yesterday in maths we looked at the distributive strategy.  I learn’t that in the distributive strategy you have to brake up the numbers. Like I said in a recent post about improving my attitude towards maths, I think I’m on the right track. I have to call this best maths lesson ever. Here  is an example.

23×6 =138

(20×6 )+(3×6)  ←brake the sum in to pieces.                                                                                                                   120  +  18 = 138 ←always work the numbers in the brackets out separately and add the two numbers underneath the brackets. This is the distributive strategy.

Thanks for reading.
