    This is the definition of distributive property:

    The Distributive Property is an algebra property which is used to multiply a single term and two or more terms inside a set of parentheses.

    For example:

    3 (2+4)

    According to the distributive property, you first have to add these two numbers (2+4 = 6) and then multiply the result 6 by 3 = 18.

    The distributive property allows multiplication of elements in parenthesis by a number outside the parenthesis. This is demonstrated as:

    2 (x + 5)

    = 2x + 10
