## Distributive Property in Mathematics

Distributive property of addition is given by a(b+c) = ab + ac

Using this formula we can calculate and solve variables and expressions.

**Example:**Simplify the given expression 5(2 + 7)

Solution:

Given expression: 5(2+ 7)

According to the distributive property

a(b+c) = ab+ ac

Hence,

5(2 + 7) = 5(2) + 5(7)

=10+ 35

= 45

Therefore, 5 (2+7) is 45
