The distributive property- Semester Exam Review Hey guys! This is sadly our last blog for my mid-term review!

The distributive property:

Problem: 3(x+4)
So the distributive properties main purpose is to make it break down problems to make it easier for you to understand what's actually happening to the equations. So first you want to multiply everything by three, just like so:
3(x)+3(4)
Now because you 3(x) does not equal anything other then 3x. We leave it as that. Now 3(4) you can multiply. Which equals 12. So our answer to our problem is left as:
3x+12.
