### Distributive Property in Maths

In Mathematics, the numbers should obey the characteristic property during the arithmetic operations. The different properties are associative property, commutative property, distributive property, inverse property, identity property and so on. The distributive property is the one which allows us to multiply the number by a group of numbers, which are added together. The distributive property is given by: a(b+c) = ab + ac

### Example

Question:
Simplify the given expression 4(2 + 8)
Solution:
Given expression: 4(2+ 8)
We know that the distributive property is given by:
a(b+c) = ab+ ac
Hence,
4(2 + 8) = 4(2) + 4(8)
=8+ 32
= 40
Therefore, 4 (2+8) is 40

6(10+z+3)

1. chandraprabha

6(10+z+3)=60+6z+18
= 6z+78

7(2x + y) + 5(x+4y) = 14x+7y+5x+20y
= 19x+27y

36. 5(___ + 15) = 5(21)

1. chandraprabha

Let “x” be the unknown value
Thus, 5(x+15)= 5(21)
Using distributive property,
5x+75= 105
5x= 105-75
5x=30
x=30/5
x=6
Hence the unknown value in the equation is 6.

37. 8(6s+y)

45. Charlee

im a bit confused on this problem

6(5 – 3x) – 5x = 99

1. chandraprabha

6(5 – 3x) – 5x = 99
Using distributive property,
30-18x-5x=99
30-23x = 99
-23x= 99-30
-23x=69
x=-69/23
x=-3.
