Solved Example

Q. Which property of multiplication is shown?\newlinek(m+n)=km+knk \cdot (m + n) = k \cdot m + k \cdot n
  1. Identify Property of Multiplication: Identify the property of multiplication demonstrated by the equation k(m+n)=km+knk \cdot (m + n) = k \cdot m + k \cdot n.\newlineIn this equation, a single number kk is being multiplied by the sum of two numbers mm and nn. The result is the same as when kk is multiplied by each of mm and nn separately, and then those products are added together. This is a classic example of the distributive property of multiplication over addition.
  2. Match with Correct Choice: Match the property identified in Step 11 with the correct choice from the given options.\newlineThe distributive property allows us to multiply a number by a sum by distributing the multiplication over each addend and then adding the results. This matches choice (B)(B) distributive from the given options.
