When multiplying any value to an addition or subtraction expression in parentheses, the multiplier can be multiplied to each value in the expression and the parentheses removed. or example:

x*(y+z)=xy+xz

This also works with exponents over multiplication:

(xy)z=xzyz

the distributive property states that a(b+c) = ab+ac

you take whats inside the parenthesis and multiply it by the outside.

the distributive property is something like 4(3+8)

you would multiply 4 times 3+ 4 times 8
