  9. 9. DISTRIBUTIVE PROPERTYThe distributive property helps us when we cannotsolve what is in the parentheses.For example: 3(x + 7)We cannot add x and 7 so we need to distribute.We must distribute the 3 to BOTH the x and the 7Then we multiplyFor an answer we would get 3x + 3(7) or 3x + 21In general form, we write the distributive property asa(b + c) = ab + ac
