Presentation Transcript

### Distributive Property

• The property that states that multiplying a sum by a number is the same as multiplying each addend in the sum by the number and then adding the products.

• 7 x 15

7 x (10 + 5)

(7 x 10) + (7 x 5)

70 + 35

105

• Decide which number will be the sum

• Take that sum apart into easier addends (expanded notation recommended)

• Multiply each addend with the factor

• Add the partial products together

Distributive Property is represented as…

a(b + c) = (a x b) + (a x c),

a(b + c) = ab + ac

for any value of a, b, and c
