## What is Distributive Property Calculator?

**Distributive property **states that for any expression of the form a (b + c), which means a × (b + c), operand 'a' can be distributed among operands 'b' and 'c' as (a × b) + (a × c).

**a × (b + c) = (a × b) + (a × c)**

Let us look at an example to understand the distributive property.

**Solved Example:**

Solve 3(4 + 5) using the distributive property.

**Solution:**

According to the distributive property,

a × (b + c) = (a × b) + (a × c)

Writing the giving expression in the above form we get,

3 × (4 + 5) = (3 × 4) + (3 × 5)

= (3 × 4) + (3 × 5)

= 12 + 15

= 27

Therefore**, **3(4 +5) = 27.

Similarly, you can use the calculator to find the values of the following expressions.

- 8(12+3)
- 7(5+3)
- 4(2+9)
