The distributive property of multiplication is a mathematical rule that states that the product of a number and a sum is equal to the sum of the products of the number and each individual addend. In other words, it allows you to multiply a number by a group of numbers by multiplying the number by each individual addend and then adding up all the products.
The distributive property is a fundamental rule of arithmetic that is often used without being explicitly stated. It is used in many algebraic manipulations and is a crucial tool for solving equations.
