Examples, solutions, videos, and lessons to help Grade 6 students learn to identify when two expressions are equivalent (i.e., when the two expressions name the same number regardless of which value is substituted into them).

For example, apply the distributive property to the expression 3 (2 + x) to produce the equivalent expression 6 + 3x; apply the distributive property to the expression 24x + 18y to produce the equivalent expression 6 (4x + 3y); apply properties of operations to y + y + y to produce the equivalent expression 3y.

Common Core: 6.EE.4
