VerifiedStep 1

1 of 2Theater tickets cost $\$14$ dollars for adults (a),\ $\$ 8$ for children (c).

Each person who went to the theater on Thursday made a $\$5$ contribution to charity.

An expression using the Distributive Property

$b(a+c)=ba+bc$

First, multiply the 5 by each of the terms inside the parentheses.

$5\cdot (14+8)$

Next, simplify each part of the expression and then add.

$=5\cdot 14+5\cdot 8=110$
