An expression equal to 15 + 35, using distributive property, is 5(3 + 7). Under distributive property, 5*3=15 and 5*7=35.

In the most general sense, "simplify" means to replace an expression with an equivalent expression that is simpler. For example, 2x + 3x can be simplified as 5x (using the distributive property); x5x7 can be simplified as x12 (you may add exponents if the base is the same), etc.

None whatsoever. You might find the distributive property useful when trying to calculate 39*74. Of course, if you are familiar with the 39 times table or the 74 times table, the distributive property is a complete waste of time! But somehow I doubt that level of arithmetic competence.

It cannot be, unless you use extremely complicated fractions.

It is: 4(x+y+z)

7*14 = 98. Why does the distributive property need to come into it?

You would distribute the numbers for example 5(4+5) you would go 5*4 + 5*5and you get the answer which is 45.

This expression is as simple as it can be.Assuming you are multiplying by 3, an alternate way of writing it would be to open the parentheses (using the distributive law). But that won't be any simpler.

The distributive property of multiplication deals with multiplying across a set of parenthesis. An example of this property would be, x(y+z) = xy + xz.

The distributive property of multiplication over addition and the identity property of multiplication. RS + RS = 1*RS + 1*RS (using identity property) = (1 + 1)*RS (using distributive property) = 2*RS

6 x 53 = 6(50 + 3) = (6 x 50) + (6 x 3) = 300 + 18 = 318

8*31 = 8*(30 + 1) which, using the distributive property, is= 8*30 + 8*1 = 240 + 8 = 248
