Definition:

Distributive property holds that multiplying the sum/difference of two or more quantity by a number is equal to multiplying each quantity separately by the number and then adding/subtracting the products together.

Summary:

a(b+c) = ab + ac

The distributive property states that the product of an expression and a sum is equal to the sum of the products of the expression and each term in the sum.

Example:

2 ( 5 + 3) = (2 x 5) + ( 2 x 3)
2(8) = 10 + 6
16 = 16
