## What is the Distributive Property Calculator?

Distributive property calculator uses the distributive property to solve expressions of the form a (b + c). Cuemath's distributive property calculator helps you to easily find the solution of the expression a(b+c) withh in a few seconds.

Note: Enter numbers upto 3 digits.

## How to Use the Distributive Property Calculator?

Follow the steps given below to use the distributive property calculator.

**Step 1: **Enter the inputs for the expression of the form a (b + c).

**Step 2: **Click on the "**Calculate**" button to show the value of the result, of the expression.

**Step 3: **Click on "**Reset**" button to enter a new expression of the form a (b + c).

## What is the Distributive Property?

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 some solved examples to understand the distributive property.

**Solved Example 1:**

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.

Now, use the distributive property calculator to find the values of the following expressions.

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