Answer: $435.95

Step-by-step explanation: the 9.5% of taxes is $36.95 so added together it’s 435.95

The distributive property is just one of those things that you will have to accept without a proof (called on "axiom"). The property is basically

This works even if we substitute numbers.

2(4 + 6) = 2*4 + 2*6 = 8 + 12 = 20

You can prove this by doing it another away:

2(10) = 20

Factoring is the opposite of distributing. If you have

xy + xz,

then you see that each term has an x in it. xy has an x and xz has an x. Then you can factor ("take out") an x because both have an x in them.

xy + xz becomes x(y + z)

You can prove this with the distributive property because if you distribute the x, it becomes xy + xz again.

I hope I helped at least a little.

**Answer:**

9 6/8, 9 3/4. 9.75

**Step-by-step explanation:**

1 1/4 would equal 10/8 if she has 10 7/8 then you'd take 7/8 out of 10/8 which would leave you with 2/8 left which you'd take out of the whole number 10 which would leave you with 9 6/8

simplified answer is 9 3/4

or: 9.75
