Euclid showed geometrically the distributed law of multiplication. Let #bar(AB) and bar(BC)# be two straight lines, tracing a rectangle and let #bar(BC)#be cut at random at the points D & E. Use this fact to show the distributed law?
Please see below.
Therefore area of rectangle
Also area of rectangles
it is evident from the image that area of rectangle
which is nothing but the distributive law.
