Videos, worksheets, stories and solutions 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*
