# Distributive Property (Factoring) With Area Model Worksheet

## 7 problems   The distributive property states that when we multiply a given number with the sum or difference of two or more terms, the result obtained will be equal to the result obtained if you multiply the terms separately.

For example, 4 (3 + 5) = 4 (8) = 4 x 8 = 32. Likewise, (4 * 3) + (4 * 5) = 32. We get the same result for both methods. The distributive property holds true or applies to the sum or difference of two or more terms. The area model also uses this property to find the areas of different models like square, rectangle etc.
