A distributive property calculator is designed to solve any simple mathematical equation by the basic distribution property.

“By multiplying any number with parenthesis set, we will get the exact and same answer as we multiply that number with each value contained in the parenthesis individually and then adding them”

A distributive property or simply distribution law is a key method to simplify each and every ordinary mathematical equation. The general expression for distribution property is as follows:

**a*(b+c)**

The above expression gives us the step by step detailed and exact answer in the form of:

**a*b +a*c**

We can use distributive property to simplify the expression. Let us have a look of some examples to have a hands on grip on how to use the distributive property.

**Example # 01:**

Simplify the expression using distributive law:

**19*(67 + 3)**

**Solution:**

As we know that distribution property is given as:

**(a+b)*c = a*c + b*c**

So, we have;

**19*(67 + 3)**

**=19*67 +19*3**

**=1273 + 57**

**=1330**

You can authenticate your answer with the help of distribute calculator for double check.

**Example # 02:**

Solve for distribution property:

**(7-5)*9**

Solution:

As we know that distribution property is given as:

**(a+b)*c = a*c + b*c**

It is clear that addition is similar to subtraction with opposite signs. So, we have;

**(7-5)*9**

**=7*9 -5*9**

**=63 – 45**

**=18**

Using distributive calculator, you can get detailed implementation of proper use of distributive property to generate the desired results.

**Example # 03:**

Solve the following expression using distribution law:

**(3+9-12)*(22-0.2+2)**

Solution:

Following the basic rule of distributive property, we have;

**(3+9-12)*(22-0.2+2)**

**=3*22 – 3*0.2 + 3*2 + 9*22 – 9*0.2 + 9*2 – 12*22 + 12*0.2 – 12*2**

For instance 0.2 can also be written as 2/10. so, we have;

**=3*22 – 3*2/10 + 3*2 + 9*22 – 9*2/10 + 9*2 – 12*22 + 12*2/10 – 12*2**

**=66 – 6/10 + 6 + 198 – 18/10 + 18 – 264 + 24/10 – 24**

**=66 + 6 + 198 + 18 – 264 – 24 – 6/10 – 18/10 + 24/10**

**=0 – 6/10 – 18/10 + 24/10**

**=-6-18+24/10**

**=0/10**

**=0**
