**Distributive Law**says you get the same answer when you:

1. multiply a number by a group of numbers added together, or

2. do each multiply separately then add them

**a × (b + c) = a × b + a × c**

Examples of uses:

What is 6 × 204 ?

6 × 204 = 6×200 + 6×4 = 1,200 + 24 = 1,224

What is 16 × 6 + 16 × 4?

16 × 6 + 16 × 4 = 16 × (6+4) = 16 × 10 = 160

26×3 - 24×3

26×3 - 24×3 = (26 - 24) × 3 = 2 × 3 = 6

6×7 + 2×7 + 3×7 + 5×7 + 4×7

6×7 + 2×7 + 3×7 + 5×7 + 4×7 = (6+2+3+5+4) × 7 = 20 × 7 = 140
