Suppose die distance you travel to school is 5 mi. What is die total distance for 197 trips from home to school? Use mental madi.
The total amount of trips is ,using mental math we can write the amount of students as To solve the problem multiply the total amount of trips to the distance traveled to school. So,
Therefore,the total distance to school is
Using distributive property, show the total number of trips as the difference of two numbers, which is easier to multiply through mental math.
You just need to multiply the distance to the number of trips. \par \par
