This clip is just a few minutes of a multi-hour course.  
Master this subject with our full length step-by-step lessons!

   

 

Lesson Summary:
In this lesson, you'll learn about the distributive property in Algebra and how to use it.  The distributive property is one of the most commonly used properties in all of Algebra, and because of this you'll be using distribution in a great many types of problems.

The essential concept is that if you have a number or variable sitting outside of a set of parenthesis, you can distribute (multiply) what is outside of the parenthesis to the terms that are on the inside of the parenthesis. This process allows you to simplify terms in algebra, and it is used to solve equations and inequalities in future lessons.

You'll gain practice with distribution using step-by-step example problems.
