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.

I don't. I learned the 18 times table at school - around 50 years ago - and still recall it.

It is usually applied in arithmetic to simplify multiplication. For example, find the value of 9*46. Now, my knowledge of the 9 times table does not extend to 46 nines and I certainly do not know the 46 times table but, using the distributive property: 9 * 46 = 9*(40 + 6) = 9*40 + 9*6 [That's the step where the distributive property was used] and, now its easy. I know 9*4 = 36 so 9*40 = 360 and 9*6 = 56 Thus 9 * 46 = 360 + 56 = 416.

The distributive property is not related to finding equivalent fractions. The distributive property is a rule that states a(b + c) is equal to ab + ac. It is used to simplify expressions and perform operations like multiplication or addition. To find an equivalent fraction, you would need to multiply or divide the numerator and denominator by the same nonzero number.

You don't need to use the distributive property. 3*17 = 51 so 30*17 = 510 Why invoke procedures that are not necessary?

Some people use the distributive property to add 24 and 36, but you wouldn't use it to find the GCF which, by the way, is 12.

(8x40)+(8x5)

You need at least two numbers to find a GCF.

Multiplication can be the first step when using the distributive property with subtraction. The distributive law of multiplication over subtraction is that the difference of the subtraction problem and then multiply, or multiply each individual products and then find the difference.

(2 x 9) + (3 x 9) = 5 x 9 = 45 The GCF is 9.

6 x 4.3 = 6 x 4 + 6 x 0.3 = 24 + 1.8 = 25.8

you use distributive property, basically adding muliplt numbers to find the quotient. quotient being the answer to a division problem.
