Question

# Seven people visited a local restaurant to get some lunch. A burger costs \$8 and a bottle of soda costs \$2. If all seven people ordered a burger and a soda, find a numerical expression showing the amount of money the restaurant made for this order.

## 7(2 + 8)    8(8 + 2)    2(8 + 7)    7(8 × 2) Hint:

## The correct answer is: 7(2 + 8)

### In the question it is given thatNumber of people visited the local restaurant= 7Price of a burger=\$8Price of a bottle of soda= \$2We have to find the numerical expression for total amount made by the restaurant.The total cost = (2 + 8)Since, seven people ordered a burger and a soda for each.So, the total number of items ordered is 7(2 + 8).Therefore, the correct option is a, i.e., 7(2 + 8).

In distributive property, when a factor is to be multiplied with the sum of two numbers, we do not directly add the two numbers and then multiply the sum with the factor. Rather, we multiply both the numbers with the factor differently and then add the multiplication value.
