# How do you solve 5(4d+8)=40 using the distributive property?

Apr 19, 2018

$d = 0$

#### Explanation:

$5 \left(4 d + 8\right) = 40$

First, you multiply $4 d$ and $8$ by $5$.

$20 d + 40 = 40$

Then, you subtract $40$ from both sides and you get

$20 d = 0$

Now you divide both sides by $20$ and you get

$d = 0$
