5*64/15 = 5*6 + 5*4/15 (using the distributive property of multiplication over addition). = 30 + 4/3 = 30 + 11/3 = 311/3

Distributive property of 3x16

8*3.5 = 8*(3 + 0.5) which, applying the distributive property, = 8*3 + 8*0.5 = 24 + 4 = 28

19*14 = 19*(10 + 4) = 19*10 + 19*4 = 190 + 76 = 266 (You could use the distributive property again to split 19 into 10 + 9 but that is multiplying by 19 is simple enough and using the distributive property for that is just laziness.

The distributive property involves two differentoperations - usually addition and multiplication in the same calculation.

The distributive property involves two differentoperations - usually addition and multiplication in the same calculation.

12 times 14 = 12*(10 + 4) You could apply the distributive property twice and go for (10 + 2)*(10 + 4)

The distributive property refers to a property of TWO binary operations - usually of multiplication and addition - not just one operation. Consequently, 7*420 does not have a distributive property.

Yes, but it would be a pointless thing to do. The associative property is much more appropriate.
