Find using distributivity:(i){7/5*(-3/12)} + {7/5*5/12}(ii) {9/16*4/12} + {9/16*-3/9}

Find using distributivity:

(i) \left \{ \frac{7}{5}\times \left ( \frac{-3}{12} \right ) \right \}+\left \{ \frac{7}{5}\times \frac{5}{12} \right \}                  (ii) \left \{ \frac{9}{16}\times \frac{4}{12} \right \}+\left \{ \frac{9}{16}\times \frac{-3}{9} \right \}

(i)  Using distributivity,  a(b+c) = ab + ac

           \left \{ \frac{7}{5}\times \left ( \frac{-3}{12} \right ) \right \}+\left \{ \frac{7}{5}\times \frac{5}{12} \right \} = \frac{7}{5}\left ( \frac{-3}{12}+\frac{5}{12} \right )\\\\\\=\frac{7}{5}\times\frac{1}{6} = \frac{7}{30}

 

(ii) Using distributivity of multiplication over addition and subtraction,

      \left \{ \frac{9}{16}\times \frac{4}{12} \right \}+\left \{ \frac{9}{16}\times \frac{-3}{9} \right \} = \frac{9}{16}\left ( \frac{4}{12}-\frac{3}{9} \right )\\\\\\=\frac{9}{16}\times0 = 0
