# Distributive Property Calculator

The Distributive property calculator is used to multiply one or many values with the set of parenthesis. The operation inside the parentheses either addition or subtraction is multiplied by the number outside the parenthesis. The distributive law is symbolically represented as a(b+c) = ab + ac. When the values of a, b, and c are entered in the distributive property of multiplication over addition calculator, it calculates the results and displays.

The Distributive property calculator is used to multiply one or many values with the set of parenthesis. The operation inside the parentheses either addition or subtraction is multiplied by the number outside the parenthesis. The distributive law is symbolically represented as a(b+c) = ab + ac. When the values of a, b, and c are entered in the distributive property of multiplication over addition calculator, it calculates the results and displays.

#### Formula:

a(b + c) = ab + ac

### Example:

Simplify and prove the following expression 2(-5 + 6) using the distributive property.

#### Solution:

a=2
b=-5
c=6
Substitute the values in the property.
2(-5 + 6) = 2 x (-5) + 2 x 6
2(1) = -10 + 12
2 = 2
Hence the distributive property is proved.
