Objective: To use the distributive property to simplify expressions
The distributive property can be used to simplify the product of a number and a sum or a difference. An algebraic expression can be simplified by combining parts of the expression that are alike (aka Like Terms).
When you COMBINE LIKE TERMS you are actually applying the the distributive property.
