The distributive property is when you take you number is share it with all the other numbers in the parenthesis. An example is x(2 + 3) = 2x + 3X.
They are the associative property, distributive property and the commutative property.
The distributive property need not have any k in it.
It means nothing, really. The distributive property is a property of multiplication over addition or subtraction. It has little, if anything, to do with integers.
The distributive property in math is (in variable definition) : a(b+c)=ab+ac For example you could use the distributive property to simplify this expression: 3(x+4) (3)(x) + (3)(4) 3x+12 is your answer! Hope this helps! -dancinggirl25
The distributive property breaks down the equation to make it more simple to do. It is often used for mental math. An example is (12x56). (10x50=500)+(2x6=12) then, (500+12=512).
Its quiet simple. All you have to know is that when you use the distributive property in math, it's most likely and equation. So you basically remove the parentheses. AKA(expanding the equation)
distributive, associative, commutative, and identity (also called the zero property)
If you're talkin about the distributive property, here's an example of how to use it: 5(x + 4) You do 5*x= 5x and 5*4= 20 and you get 5x + 20 Get it? Hope could help :)
That means that the so-called "distributive property" is used, which relates multiplication and addition: a(b+c) = ab + ac
