# Susan went shopping, she bought 2 cards that cost 5 dollars each and 2 envelopes that cost 3 dollars each. Choose the expression shows the total money she spent on cards and envelopes.

## 3(2 + 2)    2(2 + 3)    2(3 + 5)    5(3 + 2) Hint:

## The correct answer is: 2(3 + 5)

### In the question it is given that,Total number of cards Susan bought = 2Each card costs = 5 dollarsNumber of envelopes bought = 2Cost of each envelope = 3 dollarsHere, we have to find the expression for the total money spent on cards and envelopes.Cost of cards = 2×5 dollarsCost of envelopes = 2×3 dollarsSo, the expression for the total money spent on cards and envelopes= (2×5) + (2×3)= 2×(3+5)Thus, the expression for the total money spent on cards and envelopes is 2×(3+5).Therefore, the correct option is c, i.e., 2(3+5).

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.
