Properties

The Distributive Property To distribute means to separate or break apart and then dispense evenly. The Distributive Property allows you to multiply each number inside a set of parenthesis by a factor outside the parenthesis and find the sum or difference of the resulting products.

The Distributive Property 5(x) + 5(2) = 5x + 10 ab + ac

The Distributive Property 2(x) – 2(2) = 2x – 4 ab – ac

The Distributive Property 4(x) + 4(y) + 4(2) 4x + 4y + 8 ab + ac + ad

Example #2 3(m – 4) 3(m) – 3(4) 3m – 12 Example #3 -2(y + 3) -2(y) + (-2)3 -2y + (-6) -2y – 6
