    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. Take a look at the problem below.

    Hm. Well. Let's use that example. 5(x+6). You take the 5 and distribute it, which means you take the 5 and multiply it by what's in the parenthesis. First you do 5 times x, which is 5x then you take 5 times 6 which is 30. You come up with a total of 5x+30. But if I were to try to define distribute property it would sound like: The distributive property is when you multiply a term by two or more terms in the parenthesis. It's basically what the actual definition is. It sounds smart but all it is is mulyiplying terms by another term. A term is either a single number or variable. A variable is a letter in place of a number.

    Different from all the other properties or only a select few? What are you learning?
