The distributive property of multiplication states that, when we multiply a given number with the sum of two or more numbers ( addends), the result obtained will be equal to the result obtained if you multiply the numbers separately.

For example, 6 (3 + 5) = 6 (8) = 6 8 = 48. Likewise, (6 * 3) + (6 * 5) = 48. We get the same result for both methods. The distributive property holds true or applies to the sum or difference of two or more numbers.
