The Distributive Property. The Distributive Property. The product of a and ( b+c ): a( b+c ) = ab + ac ex: 5(x + 2) = 5(x) + 5(2) 5x + 10. The product of a and (b-c): a(b-c) = ab – ac ex: 4(x –7)= 4(x) – 4(7) 4x –28.

We could say that this is 4(x + 2) Or..**4**2 4 x So we can say that 4(x+2) = 4x+8**A swimming pool has a shallow end and a deep end. Find the**surface area of the pool.
