Videos, worksheets, stories and songs to help Grade 6 students learn about the Distributive Property of Multiplication.

The distributive property states that multiplying a sum by a number is the same as multiplying each addend by that number and then adding the two products.
3(1 + 4) = (3 × 1) + (3 × 4)

If we let a, b, and c be any whole numbers, then a(b + c) = ab + ac

Introduction to the Distributive Property

This lesson teaches the basics of the distributive property.

This video defines the multiplicative identity and distributive property of multiplication and shows you how to use these properties to solve multiplication problems.

Learn the distributive property, which states that a(b + c) = ab + ac. In other words, the number or variable that is outside the set of parentheses "distributes" through the parentheses, multiplying by each of the numbers inside.
