## How do you solve distributive property using multiplication?

How to Use the Distributive Property of Multiplication

- Simplify the numbers. In this example, 101 = 100 + 1, so:
- Split the problem into two easier problems. Take the number outside the parentheses, and multiply it by each number inside the parentheses, one at a time.
- Add the products.

### What is distributive property in math multiplication?

A property is a characteristic about something that is always true. The distributive property of multiplication is a rule that is always true. The distributive property says that you can distribute a number being multiplied into parentheses.

#### What is example of distributive property?

What is Distributive Property?

The distributive property of multiplication over addition: | The distributive property of multiplication over subtraction: |
---|---|

8 × ( 20 + 7 ) = 8 × 20 + 8 × 7 = 160 + 56 = 216 | 8 × ( 30 − 3 ) = 8 × 30 − 8 × 3 = 240 − 24 = 216 |

**What is distributive property of multiplication over addition with example?**

The distributive property of multiplication over addition is applied when you multiply a value by a sum. For example, you want to multiply 5 by the sum of 10 + 3. As we have like terms, we usually first add the numbers and then multiply by 5. But, according to the property, you can first multiply every addend by 5.

**How do you do distributive property equations?**

Distributive property with exponents

- Expand the equation.
- Multiply (distribute) the first numbers of each set, outer numbers of each set, inner numbers of each set, and the last numbers of each set.
- Combine like terms.
- Solve the equation and simplify, if needed.

## Which equation is an example of distributive property?

The distributive property states, if p, q, and r are three rational numbers, then the relation between the three is given as, p × (q + r) = (p × q) + (p × r). For example, 1/3(1/2 + 1/5) = 1/3 × 1/2 + 1/3 × 1/5 = 7/30. This property is also known as the distributivity of multiplication over addition.

### Is the distributive property only for multiplication?

The distributive property tells us how to solve expressions in the form of a(b + c). The distributive property is sometimes called the distributive law of multiplication and division. Then we need to remember to multiply first, before doing the addition!
