6.EE.4 - Identify when two expressions are equivalent (i.e., when the two expressions name the same number regardless of which value is substituted into them). 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(4 + 3y); apply properties of operations to y + y + y to produce the equivalent expression 3y. DOMAIN Expressions and Equations

CLUSTER Apply and extend previous understandings of arithmetic to algebraic expressions.
