# When do you use the Distributive Property?

Nov 14, 2014

The Distributive Property can help make numbers easier to solve because you are "breaking the numbers into parts".

In Algebra, you can use the Distributive Property if you want to remove parentheses in a problem.

For example: 3(2+5)
3$\times$2= 6 and 3$\times$5=1 5, now to find the answer just add these numbers up, you will get 21.
