# How do you use the distributive property to multiply 16(102)?

Apr 28, 2016

$16 \left(102\right) = 1632$

#### Explanation:

Distributive property states that $a \times \left(b + c\right) = a \times b + a \times c$

Using this, $16 \left(102\right)$

= $16 \times \left(100 + 2\right)$

= $16 \times 100 + 16 \times 2$

= $1600 + 32$

= $1632$
