# Use the Distributive Property

Use the distributive property, as Karen and Lucy did, to help you find each product. Use mental math when you can.

- 7 ⋅ $6.12
- 12 ⋅ $2.95
- $-\frac{3}{4}\cdot 4\frac{1}{2}$

## Hint:

Write the second factor in each problem as a sum or a difference and then apply the distributive property.
