The property of multiplying the sum of two or more addends by a number will give the same result as multiplying each addend individually by the number and then adding the products together is known as distributive property.
The Distributive Property is an algebraic property that is used to multiply a single value and two or more values within a set of parenthesis. The distributive Property States that when a factor is multiplied by the sum/addition of two terms, it is essential to multiply each of the two numbers by the factor, and finally perform the addition operation. This property can be stated symbolically as:
A ( B+ C) = AB + AC
Where A, B and C are three different values.
